The Killing

Series 3 - 6. The Killing III

The word “debt” hovers darkly over The Killing III; the kidnapper of little Emilie insists she will not be handed over safely until this debt is paid. But, awkwardly, he is leaving Sarah Lund and her team, and Emilie’s distraught parents, to work out what is driving him. What does he want? What must be repaid?

It’s another double bill of episodes that will pull you into its gloomy embrace as the hunt for Emilie becomes ever more deeply entwined with Danish politics, while nervy PM Kamper makes a dramatic decision. Meanwhile, Emilie’s father Robert prepares to make a bold move, while Lund and her partner Borch are led to Jutland, where they are both at risk.
