Forbrydelsen is the original Danish show on which AMC’s The Killing is based. A teenage girl’s brutal murder unravels a mystery of political corruption and family struggle, leading Detective Sarah Lund (Sofie Grabol, Fortitude) to remain in Copenhagen to solve the case, causing familial issues of her own. Those familiar with the US version will find Detective Lund a much darker character than Linden, but Grabol’s intense portrayal will have you glued to the screen. Seasons 2 and 3 follow new story lines, but aren’t as good as the first.
