Who killed Rosie Larson? That is the question posed by A&E’s The Killing.
How many of you have been watching it? If you haven’t, you don’t know what you are missing.
The show is sad, frustrating, slow, and extraordinarily well acted. In short, it seems so real.
The lead detectives on the show do not even seem like they are actors. The former narc turned homicide detective played by Joel Kinnaman is scary real as is lead detective Mireille Enos. The guy who plays Rosie’s father, played by Brent Sexton is just scary. He is the kind of big and scary guy that ninjas run away from. Everyone is so good on the show, which is good since everyone is also a suspect.
Are you watching this show?
Right now, my money is on the Aunt. Most people over at the AMC website think it is the father’s assistant Belko Royce, but he gives off a semi-obvious creep vibe that I think is meant to distract. I think it is the aunt. She has been super-helpful and she just returned Rosie’s books that were in her car.
I like her for the crime.
What do you think?

Very dark. It has a very "Scandinavian" feel to it.
I have enjoyed watching it. And I'm sorta leaning toward the aunt, as well.

The Mayor did it (or had it done).

I've only seen the first four episodes, but I also think the mayor is involved. The way they were setting up the story with the young, liberal challenger and the old, pro-business mayor, has me thinking that way. Of course, maybe things have changed in the last few episodes and that's no longer the case.

Belko got my vote in episode 1 and I'm sticking with it.

P.S. It's AMC not A&E.
Belko from episode one: due to proximity to his boss's family & he's a psychopathic bigot w/ poor impulse control,

I think Jason's dad killed Rosie because…he is one of the few who could have afforded to buy her those shoes; he knew Rosie through his son and Rosie's aunt (Mitch's sister)…witness her behavior at the funeral when he ignored her(think they had a thing going at one time); and lastly, he is an arrogant prick who spoiled his son rotten and then doesn't like the result!
