Matt Roush’s week in review in TV Guide includes an Emmy alert: the “grieving Larsens, played by Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes, remain the heart and tortured soul of AMC’s remarkable The Killing.”

• Discussing the Emmys, Gold Derby puts Billy Campbell on the list of those “hoping for their first Emmy recognition” and believes Michelle Forbes “might finally have a role that resonates with Emmy voters.”

The New York Post profiles Joel Kinnaman: “With his hollow eyes and air of lanky menace, he slips so seamlessly into the role of Detective Stephen Holder, a former narc who lures suspects by offering them fake joints, you’d think he came off the streets.”

New York Magazine addresses questions that viewers may be having about The Killing and calls it “an impressive display of storytelling.”

A Wall Street Journal article about feature film directors taking TV jobs cites Patty Jenkins, who directed The Killing‘s pilot. appreciates The Killing‘s “ability to show us how one heinous crime can affect so many people,” while the San Antonio Express-News says The Killing “manages, week after week, to exceed my already high expectations.”

The Buffalo News is hooked on The Killing and includes the drama in an “addict’s guide” to May sweeps.
