Cynopsis Media predicts Mireille Enos will get a best actress Emmy nomination.

Poptimal considers The Killing to be the season’s best new show: “It will haunt your dreams and turn a TV show into an obsession.”

AMC lands at No. 4 on Ad Age‘s Entertainment A-List (behind Glee at No. 1), citing the network’s “savvier” marketing efforts, including the portrayal of The Killing “more as a murder mystery than a police procedural.”

The Daily Beast interviews Michelle Forbes, who shares, “when you’re dealing with two people who are confused by their grief, that’s an interesting scenario.” interviews Brandon Jay McLaren (Bennett Ahmed), who talks about the Suspect Tracker and how he likes having his character in the lead: “When you go down, you’re kind of pissed off, like, ‘What?'” He tells Zap2it about the finale, “It’s good, it’s really, really good.”

Patrick Gilmore (Tom Drexler) jokes to MediaBlvd Magazine about standing next to Billy Campbell: “they had me next to him and three models in stilettos so I look like a Pygmy Warrior next to all these tall, tall people.”

Vanity Fair previewed Episode 9, “Undertow,” with this: “viewers will find the last fifteen to twenty minutes anything but slow. And Joel Kinnaman just keeps getting ghostily better and better.”

In its Episode 9, “Undertow,” preview, Cinema Blend praises The Killing for its “compelling mix of character(s) study, evidential puzzles and good old fashioned suspense.”

The Seattle Times is “still loving the performances, particularly Joel Kinnaman’s loopy Detective Holder and Michelle Forbes as the haunted, grieving Mitch Larsen.”

Variety writes about U.S. networks adapting foreign shows and mentions The Killing, based on Denmark’s Forbrydelsen, and adjustments that had to be made. reports that Mireille Enos will join a reading of Alan Alda’s new play, Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie; the cast includes her The Killing co-star, Brent Sexton.
