I saw only a few minutes of the first episode, immediately hated it, and ignored it until today.
SPOILERS FOR BOTH FORBRYDELSEN AND THE KILLING AHEAD!
According to that post, the male replacement-cum-sidekick (Jan Meyer in the original, Stephen Holder in AMC’s) wasn’t murdered as in Forbrydelsen, and there was no arrest at the end of the series!
All of you disaffected and betrayed AMC viewers, I will now tell you who killed the original “Rosie Larsen” — Nanna Birk Larsen — in Forbrydelsen.
It was the Larsen’s right-hand man.
Which made no goddammed sense in the original Forbrydelsen because the M.O. of the killer did not match up with the guy they pinned it on.
She was brutally raped and tortured.
That’s not the kind of act someone who had been a family friend and was trying to prevent her elopement would have engaged in. Period.
If I just spoiled AMC’s weak adaptation for you, then good. You don’t need to watch that abomination’s second season now.
You are free.
