The Killing (2014) Review

EW.com – As resilient and plucky as the little engine that could (I think I can, I think I can…be a great show one day!), The Killing chugs back for an improbable fourth season, a six-episode Netflix bingeable. In the same way the fitfully riveting rain-soaked policier dug deep into the experience of grief during its first couple of seasons, the new installment wallows in guilt: Soul-mate Seattle detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman)—tweaking with shame after slaying a serial killer (Linden’s ex-partner and lover)—slowly unravel in familiar ways as they slowly investigate the murder of a troubled military cadet’s seemingly respectable, secretly skeevy family. Did I mention it’s slow? You get the sense that Linden and Holder could crack the mystery lickety-split if not for the contrived obstacles of amnesia and a hyperprotective military-academy headmistress played by Joan Allen, who does little more than tell the cops that they can’t interview their chief suspect. There’s enough intrigue to pull you through, and the Enos/Kinnaman chemistry is, as always, engrossing. Also: less rain! But the relentless commitment to making Linden and Holder miserable—a shallow approach to quality-drama heaviness—grows tedious. In a rare light moment, Holder says, ”The sun’s out. Got my smokes. There’s a murder case I’m working.” If only it were just that: The Killing shines brightest when its stars aren’t mired in gloom and their characters just do their jobs. B-

The Killing Season 4 Posters Paint a Grim and Bloody Picture

E!Online.com – The Killing is back from the dead and from the looks of the trailer, it’s going to be a wild ride. Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) are both back and E! News can exclusively reveal the two new character posters featuring the moody characters, a lot of rain and blood.

This is the fourth and final (seriously) season of The Killing and it picks up right after the season three finale that aired on AMC. When we pick up with detectives Linden and Holder, they are struggling to mange the fallout from the season three finale and are assigned a new case.

Said case? A murder case involving a whole family. The only survivor, the son Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), was shot in the head during the slaughter. Joan Allen guest stars as Colonel Margaret Rayne, the headmaster of the all-boys military school the victim attends.

Season four of The Killing also stars Gregg Henry, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden.

The final six episodes kick off on Friday, August 1, on Netflix.

Gold Derby Q&A: Joel Kinnaman (‘The Killing’)

Actor Joel Kinnaman talks to Gold Derby editor Daniel Montgomery about filming the final six episodes of “The Killing” for Netflix, the ups and downs of being canceled twice, working with director Jonathan Demme, and the seven scenes that most excited him to make “RoboCop.”

The Killing on Netflix: Longer Episodes and F-Bombs Galore

TVLine.com – The Killing is finally letting Holder speak his native tongue.

When the ex-AMC drama debuts its fourth and final season on anything-goes Netflix later this summer, Joel Kinnaman’s tortured, streetwise detective will no longer have to watch his language.

“We can curse now,” enthuses series creator Veena Sud of her newfound freedom on Netflix. “All of us were ecstatic because, in this world, someone like Holder would say the F-bomb quite a lot, which he does this season… Joel, especially, was very happy about that.”

Holder’s not the only one who developed a potty mouth over the hiatus. “Even Linden gets an F-Bomb,” Sud confirms of his buttoned-up partner. “It’s very nice to hear that word come from her lips. And this season, in particular, she deserves to drop that F-bomb.”

The other “great joy of Netlix,” Sud shares, “is there are no commercials. In other words, the show’s relatively short six-episode season will actually have a running time closer to eight.

“We have, literally, over 15 [additional] minutes per episode,” she explains. “Each episode is jam-packed with story. It’s unrelenting. We go all the way up to the 55-59 mark in every episode.

“The DNA of the show is the same,” she adds, “but it’s gotten richer and deeper because of not having these restrictions.”
The Killing‘s profanity-laden farewell season drops Aug. 1 on Netflix.
