Søren Sveistrup heaves open a heavy wooden door and steps into a deserted Copenhagen police headquarters. Austere grey corridors give way to tatty interrogation rooms and lockers that have seen better days; in the main office huge bookcases are lined with files,
desks littered with paperwork and laptops. Shadows congregate in every corner.
Which is just the way Sveistrup likes it. The writer of The Killing believes a thriller should look murky round the edges and what isn't achieved via the Danish weather – currently cold, windy and desperately trying to drizzle – is suggested by the authentic and surprisingly
large set. We stroll about, pausing to chat in the meeting room, and loitering by Sarah Lund's desk.………. Guardian write up by Vicki Frost HERE
