The third and final season of the Danish crime drama series The Killing (aka Forbrydelsen) will receive its UK premiere on BBC Four on Saturday November 17th at 9pm, with a double-bill.

In the opening episode of the show’s third season, Denmark is in the midst of a fiercely contested election race, set against the backdrop of the financial crisis. With 10 days to go to the election, Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Lund prepares to celebrate her 25th year in the police and looks forward to the prospect of a new job in the force. But her relative peace is shattered when unidentified body parts are found at Copenhagen dock only hours before a scheduled visit by the Prime Minister. The drama series stars Sofie Gråbøl as Sarah Lund, Nikolaj Lie Kaas as Mathias Borch and Morten Suurballe Lennart Brix

    In the Killing, season 3, episode 2, in the last 4/5 minutes, Sarah Lund pithces the bag full of money into a passing bus as demanded by the guy who kidnapped the little girl. The Lund asked “where’s the girl?” on the cellphone she was receiving insructions from the kidnapper on. And the guy repliied that she hadn’t followed his instructions to come alone. He asked her to loook at the roof of the court house. And as she looked up, she (and we all) saw a bearded man flung down from the roof with a rope around his neck to his death. Likely the guy was the deputy prosecutor who’s handled the cases of some girl that had been murdered earlier likely by shifty crooks hanging around the docks masquerading as dockworkers or sailors. Find out more in Episode 3.
