Those of you looking forward to AMC’s upcoming new mystery series The Killing will definitely want to check this out. AMC posted the poster for the series on the network’s blog.
The series, which is based on a popular Danish show called Forbrydelsen, follows the investigation of the murder of teenager girl in Seatte. The story focuses on the aftermath of the murder, including the investigation, the suspects and the grieving family of the victim.
Looking at the poster below, which you can see even bigger at AMC’s site, the “Who Killed Rosie Larsen” lettering certainly has a violent feel to it, but even with the blood-red hue, Rosie’s smile and eyes take center stage here. The series’ murder victim, featured in the poster, is played by Katie Findlay.
Here’s a fuller description of the series, as released by AMC and further down is a trailer:
As “Sarah,” Mireille Enos (Big Love) portrays the lead homicide detective that investigates the death of Rosie Larsen. Other previously announced castings include: Billy Campbell (Once and Again, Enough) as Darren Richmond, Seattle’s City Council President, running for Mayor; Michelle Forbes (True Blood) as Mitch Larsen, the victim’s mother; Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash) as Stephen Holder, an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division in the investigation to find Rosie Larsen’s killer; and Brent Sexton (W., In the Valley of Elah) as Stan Larsen, the victim’s father.
The Killing premieres Sunday, April 3rd at 9/8c on AMC.
