I’ve been spending my November holed up away from the damp Seattle weather watching a TV show about the damp Seattle weather. Because, why not!
It’s one of my new favorite TV shows: The Killing. (It’s not new, I’m just late to the party.) Based on a Swedish show of the same name (but in Swedish… or at least I assume it’s the same name. I don’t speak Swedish), The Killing is basically the show for people who think Law & Order: SVU is too light and funny.
Luckily for me, I am one of those people.
But, of course, the best part of the Killing isn’t the twisty-turny plot, the great acting, or the insanely brutal crimes. The best part is Detective Sarah Linden’s amazing sweaters. How amazing are they? So amazing.I have never seen a woman on TV rock the oversized sweater/puffy coat combo as well as Sara Linden. It’s kind of incredible.This one even looks hand-knit!I think Sarah Linden might be my spirit animal. (As far as dressing goes. She doesn’t smile nearly enough to be my true spirit animal.)
