"The Killing" premiered Sunday, April 3, marking the second highest original series premiere for AMC, with 2.7 million viewers tuning in for the two-hour debut, second only to "The Walking Dead."
From writer, executive producer and showrunner Veena Sud ("Cold Case"), "The Killing" weaves together three distinct stories around a single murder, including the detectives assigned to the case and their suspects, the victim’s grieving family, and the local politicians connected to the case. Shot on location in Vancouver, "The Killing" stars Mireille Enos ("Big Love") as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective investigating the death of Rosie Larsen; Billy Campbell ("Once and Again") as Darren Richmond, Seattle’s City Council President running for Mayor; Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash) as Stephen Holder, an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division in the investigation to find Rosie’s killer; Michelle Forbes ("True Blood") as Rosie’s mother, Mitch; and Brent Sexton (W., In the Valley of Elah) as Rosie’s father, Stan.
