The Killing Series III & Trilogy Box Set

Posted November 20, 2012 04:56 PM by Webmaster

Arrow FilmsArrow Film’s Nordic Noir label has confirmed the long awaited return of all conquering Danish-crime drama The Killing (Forbrydelsen). Sarah Lund and Co. return for a third and final time on Monday December 17th as The Killing: Series III is released on Blu-ray just in time for Christmas.

Also released on December 17th is The Killing Trilogy which sees the complete series 1-3 together in a visually stunning knitwear-embossed Blu-ray box set.

The Killing Trilogy also marks the Blu-ray debut of series 1 & 2 - every episode of the hit Scandinavian show in beautiful high definition for the very first time.

More than just a TV program, The Killing has become a full-blown cultural phenomenon in the 2 short years since its first episode graced our screens in late-January 2011. Created by Søren Sveistrup for Danish production company DR, it wasn’t just the grippingly moreish storylines that enthralled the nation; it was the show’s Scandinavian style, its bleak Nordic scenery, and the connections so easily forged with its central characters, Lund in particular.

Series I joins Sarah Lund (played by Sofie Gråbøl) on what is supposed to be her final day as a detective with the Copenhagen Police department. She is all-set to immigrate to Sweden with her fiancée, when a 19-year-old girl is found raped and brutally murdered.

A local politician, Troels Hartmann, is in the middle of a hard-fought election campaign to become the new mayor of Copenhagen when suddenly, evidence links city hall to the murder. Over the course of twenty episodes, each a day in the investigation, suspect upon suspect is sought out as violence and political pressures cast their shadows over the hunt for the killer.

Two years on, and Series II finds Lund stripped of her investigative role and transferred to a low-key job in the country; but when the body of a female lawyer is found murdered in macabre and puzzling circumstances, Lund’s former boss calls her back to assist with the investigation. Initially reluctant, Lund soon changes her mind as she becomes engrossed with the case... Over the course of 10 gripping episodes, the worlds of crime, politics and the military become increasingly tangled and, as the case progresses, Lund’s mission becomes a race against time to find the culprit and prevent further killings...

Now, at long last, Detective Inspector Sarah Lund returns in Series III, the long-awaited third, and final part of the trilogy. The financial crisis is raging and the number of bankruptcies and repossessions is on the rise, but Lund has a newfound sense of peace, in the form of a new job, a new home and the recognition of achieving 25 years of service in the Police Force.

Adored by the UK public and critics alike, the BAFTA award winning The Killing spawned the UK’s love of Nordic Noir, paving the way for the likes of Borgen: Series 1, The Bridge: The Complete Series One and Wallander: Series 1-2, as well as bringing foreign language subtitled drama in general to a whole new audience.

Yes! Finally. I have been hoping for this for some time now. Can't wait to watch it during Christmas season.

I really liked the US version of the show and want to check this one out too, but 60 pounds for 3 seasons is a bit steep. Hopefully it will come out in the US at a more reasonable price.
