From the 12/16/11 issue of Entertainment Weekly:
Like others, I was dismayed by The Killing’s decline from event television to plain old series television. But even if the destination sucked, the journey was still a pleasure. Ms. [Mireille] Enos was stunningly good as the job-obsessed Linden, and the prickly camaraderie that developed between her and Holder was a joy to watch. Better yet, in The Killing we had a series that showed the true consequences of murder for those left behind. I ended up not caring a whole lot about who killed Rosie Larsen, but I cared a great deal about her grieving family.
