Tired of waiting for season two of AMC’s The Killing? Well, the second season of Danish Forbrydelsen starts on BBC Four on November 19th, if you can get to it.
Sofie Gråbøl, who stars as detective Sarah Lund, starts out in recovery from Season One:
But at a mere 10 hour-long episodes, The Killing II runs at only half the length of the first series. That is largely to do with the story, said Gråbøl. “The plot is much more complex than the first season. The plot is the main focus … but our task for ourselves was how far into [Lund’s] own darkness we could get.” The new series sees Lund, her life destroyed after the Nanna Birk Larsen case of Forbrydelsen I, working on an investigation that involves national politics, the military and Islamist terrorism.
