The brilliant Chloe Sevigny (Big Love, Hit & Miss) is taking the lead in A&E's Those Who Kill, adapted from the 2011 Danish series Den som dræber by Glen Morgan (The X Files, Millennium); a show originally inspired by the crime novels of Elsebeth Egholm. The US pilot will be directed by Joe Carnahan (Narc, The Grey).
Those Who Kill centres on a crime unit specialising in serial murder, with Sevigny playing a workaholic detective with an "innate understanding of the mind of a killer", driven by a suspicion her stepfather killed her missing 16-year-old brother. She'll be joined by James D'Arcy (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), playing a forensic psychiatrist who helps her with murder cases, but finds himself dragged into her own personal investigation.
I haven't seen the Danish original, but some of this sounds intriguing. Hopefully it will do better than AMC's remake of The Killing, which replicated the look and feel of the Danish series extremely well... but never got a firm grasp of the plotting. I'll be watching Those Who Kill, if only because Sevigny's a very interesting screen presence. What about you?
