A very riveting and addictive series, unlike other similar stories. This gets down deep and shows the chain reaction effect that crime has on all involved - from the victims and their families to those in law enforcement and at times their families - and the life-changing consequences for many. I found myself pulled in to the characters’ lives and their outcome. This is well-researched and well-written. And the actors became their characters.

Powerful and Raw
Verified purchase
I loved watching Linden and Holder unwind the events of this case. As in each of these series, the viewer carries a dark foreboding throughout -- the truth is nearby and it promises to be ugly. I remained glued to the screen episode after episode, quite a feat that a one case/one season show can sustain this level of suspense.
Despite its darkness, the show offers a refreshing break from the run of the mill cop shows where the detectives are strong, brave, well-adjusted and painfully glib. Linden and Holder are clearly human, if fact, both are damaged goods. Their jobs are fraught with horror and its clearly taken its toll. This bare humanness makes the drama more intense, believable and real.

Abbreviated Season but Brilliant!
Verified purchase
Season 4, in its abbreviated state, was really just an answer to the outcry of devastated fans everywhere, and it does not disappoint. Yes, it's dark and gruesome, but it's depth of character and story line is the epitome of what fans fell in love with originally. You can never get enough of Holder and Linden and there was no way they could've cancelled the show after the cliff hanging ending to Season 3. I still tear up watching the final moments when Linden tells Holden: "...standing right in front of's you. It's always been you."

Love this show! It's an addiction! Great plot twists. Great for binge watching. Glad Amazon carries it since Netflix stopped carrying it in August.

Linden and Holder. I loved these 2 very different cops from the first season of the Killing, even though neither of them solved that crime and sort of left us hanging. Season 2 finally cleared up the identity of Rosie Larsen's murderer and was darn good, but Season 3 was better when it introduced us to Linden's boyfriend, the cop/serial killer. The ending of Season 3 was so heart wrenching I just couldn't wait to order the DVD of the final season. I just wish there had been more of it. The ending? Let's just say, so as not to ruin it for everyone else, that it sure made me happy.

The acting in this is excellent! The characters are real and well-drawn—complex. It shows how the bad actions is one person have the domino effect in destroying others. Yet, it handles this dark message with moments of humor. I watch every year. It’s a profound work n the intricacies of human nature.

Excellent season to cap a superb series
Verified purchase
What a non-stop thriller! The atmosphere, the plot and the characters are superb. It's best to watch season 3, as season 4 is a continuation of the previous season.
Both the video and audio were excellent on my blu-ray player, even though these discs are not in the blu-ray format. I was concerned about the audio and video, as many people reported problems. Maybe they are now being created at a higher quality. Both Season 3 and 4 that I bought were of excellent quality.
