KDramaStars.com – Fans of “The Killing” TV series, which ended a few weeks ago, know that it’s a remake of the original Danish show “Forbrydelsen” but AMC and Netflix networks outdid themselves and gained a cult following in the process. Meanwhile, cast Joel Kinnaman signs on with WME.
Morwenna Ferrier wrotefor The Guardian that “The Killing” TV series more than held its own compared to the original from which it was based on.
She also described Detective Sarah Linden (Mirreille Enos) as a “higher functioning” Lund, the lead in “Forbrydelsen.”
“Linden may be a little watery compared to Lund, but once you’ve stopped comparing the two, Enos is great – her shaky patience, her dogged policework, her glowering expression (which is filmed 70% of the time through a car windscreen),” she wrote. “My only real gripe is how her (really good) hair never goes frizzy in the damp.”
But the publication said that the revelation in “The Killing” TV series was Joel Kinnaman who plays Detective Holder who was more interesting than her counterpart in the Danish show. An addict who is trying to turn his life around through his very strong faith.
“His slippery relationship with vegan food, his never-dry hair, the way he gets all overexcited when he gets to “go method” with gangs. Then there’s his rolling, laconic accent, which he has a lot of fun with. Completely absurd and untranslatable, but it sort of makes him,” she wrote.
Speaking of “The Killing” cast Joel Kinnaman, report from The Hollywood Reportersaid that the Swedish actor has signed on with the William Morris Endeavor talent agency.
Joel Kinnaman will next be seen in “Run All Night” produced by Warner Bros., along with “Taken” star Liam Neeson, and “Child 44,” described as a Soviet-era thriller. In that film he will star alongside “Mad Max Fury” star Tom Hardy and “Prometheus” cast Noomi Rapace.
