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.

[show]The series has gained notoriety for being canceled on two occasions only for the show to be revived. The show was initially canceled by AMC in 2012 after its second season but was renewed later in the year due to a strong pitch from creator Veena Sud. After its third season in 2013 the series was canceled yet again by AMC and was nonetheless later revived by Netflix who ordered a fourth and final season.
- The Danish title of the original series, "Forbrydelsen", actually translates to "The Crime" - not "The Killing" as it was called in the UK.
- Veena Sud confirmed in interviews that she wanted Rosie Larsen's murder to be a two season mystery.
