The Killing, Thursdays, 9pm, Channel 4
Readers review this week's big TV series
Thursday 14 July 2011
"Denmark 1-0 America."
"Watched half an hour and lost interest... Please don't try to remake Scandinavian crime series; you will fail miserably!"
"The Meyer/Lund dynamic is all wrong."
John O Sullivan
"I found it initially more emotionally engaging than the original, but did get quite bored midway through..."
"People seem to love books and series about child-abduction, murder, rape and paedophilia. I really don't understand how that's fun or interesting."
"Considering all the publicity and advertising Channel 4 have invested, the opening episode was definitely a flop! It was seriously boring. I can only imagine how much worse it will become after a few more episodes..."
"Not as good as the original Danish version."
"The US version is excellent – scary, funny and very well done. It seems to rain all the time in Seattle."
"Not a patch on the excellent Danish original."
"Very impressed with this version of The Killing. The characterisation is fascinating and the plot is compelling. I highly recommend it."
"This came to our screens too soon after the original."
