Number 4: The Killing
This show has battled with critics and viewers with it’s slow pace, but overall the story it tells is truly exciting. To undo the “mistake” that they created with the first two seasons this season opens up with a murder case that will be solved by the time of the season finale. This season we are following a serial killer who preys on women and kills them by practically severing their head. The only problem with this case is that is mimics a case Linden (Mireille Enos) supposedly solved a few years back, and if you are curious this is the case that drove Linden to the mad house, and the killer is currently on death row waiting to be hung for his crimes. Yes, he asked to be hung; to insure this creepiness was perfected they cast no other than usually disturbing Peter Sarsgaard. This season also has more of a focus on Holder (Joel Kinnaman) and his new partner, and Holder’s dominance helps breath more life into this series. With the pace this current season is going at I could see it quickly being renewed for a fourth season, that is if Mireille Enos isn’t busy with her Hollywood paced life thanks to the World War Z franchise that will unfold if the first movies holds up to the demand from audiences.
