The Killing, based on the wildly successful Danish series Forbrydelsen, tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. It ties together three distinct stories and as the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them.
