The Killing Season 2 (2012) - The Killing 2
Rosie Larsen's murder is no closer to a resolution than at the start of the first season as this addictive crime drama resumes with profound changes for mayoral candidate Darren Richmond (Billy Campbell). As detective Linden (Mireille Enos) pieces together more evidence telling the story of Rosie's final weeks, Rosie's father Stan (Brent Sexton) learns he hasn't quite shaken his troubled past, while wife Mitch (Michelle Forbes) goes on a journey of healing. In the mayoral race, Jamie (Eric Ladin) digs in his heels for Richmond while Gwen (Kristin Lehman) is show to have an impact on both sides. As if they don't have enough roadblocks in the investigation, Linden and Holder both battle personal demons, with Holder's credibility as a cop coming into question. Hallmarks of the series include dark, damp settings; spine-tingling music capping every episode as a key plot point is revealed; and dramatic, slow camera shots to maximize tension, no more so than in the chilling, gut-wrenching finale.
