AT LAST! Start date of The Killing 2 confirmed by BBC


After months of (mostly) patient waiting on our part, and a little bit of uncertainty, the start date of the second series of Forbrydelsen / The Killing has been confirmed.

Yes finally! Sarah ..........  and her jumpers are back on?!

BBC4, SATURDAY 19. NOVEMBER 2011, 9.00-10.00pm




This information comes via the BBC Media Centre.

It?s a 10 episode series and it looks like each episode will be shown singly over ten weeks (rather than the 2 hours slots we enjoyed in series 1).

And here?s an excerpt from the BBC?s description of the series to set the scene:

"It's been two years since former detective Sarah Lund was divested 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 at Copenhagen police HQ finds that he has no choice but to call her back in to assist with the investigation.

Initially reluctant, Lund soon becomes engrossed with the case. As police grapple with what few clues they possess, newly appointed Minister for Justice Thomas Buch strives to oversee some intricate political negotiations between parliamentary parties over the introduction of a series of new anti-terrorism laws. At the same time, soldier Jens Peter Raben awaits release from the psychiatric ward he was committed to following a nervous breakdown.

Over the course of 10 gripping episodes, the worlds of crime, politics and the military become increasingly intertwined. With more dead being added to the list of murder victims as the series progresses, Lund's mission becomes a race against time to find the culprit and prevent further killings...

Sofie Gr?b?l stars as Sarah Lund, Nicolas Bro as Thomas Buch, Charlotte Guldberg as Karina Munk J?rgensen, Preben Kristensen as Carsten Plough, Ken Vedsegaard as Jens Peter Raben, Stine Pr?torius as Louise Raben, Flemming Enevold as Torsten Jarnvig, Morten Suurballe as Lennart Brix, Mikael Birkkj?r as Ulrik Strange, Carsten Bj?rnlund as Christian S?gaard, Lotte Andersen as Ruth Hedeby, Kurt Ravn as Gert Grue Eriksen, Jens Jacob Tychsen as Erling Krabbe, Tobias Krohn as Jonas Rabe and Igor Radosavljevic as Said Bilal."


By the way, there?s a "worth a watch" interview with Sophie Grabol on Newsnight (31. October 2011), in which she discusses how Sarah Lund?s character challenges gender stereotypes.
