The series ties together three distinct stories around a single murder,
The Killing will tell the stories of detectives assigned to the case,
the victim’s grieving family and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story
also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the
case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no
accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they’ve
moved on, their past isn’t done with them.

AMC will be engaging social media and interactive media online at the
site, to let viewers feel involved in the show by offering
games and downloads. The site will feature "Rosie's Room," an exclusive
interactive experience that allows users to enter and explore the
bedroom of the teenage murder victim Rosie Larsen to learn more about
her life and uncover clues about what may have led to her untimely death.

you'd land in The Killing.
Both Chris and I got 'lead detective'. :-)

In other news, here's a video of the panel with producers of Forbrydelsen and The Killing, and comparisons of the two versions:

"I've already got my main suspect, it's the creepy looking
Jamie Wright, the campaign manager. ;-)
He's the only character of the main cast, who hasn't even the slightest
resemblance with the resp. character Morten in Forbrydelsen." (Chris)

As for me, I just can't wait to watch it, and especially Michelle. How excited are you?
