'The Killing' Preview: Who Killed Kallie Leeds?


Who killed Kallie Leeds? That's the question in the upcoming season of "The Killing."

"It's a very dark, Oliver Twist [type] story," Mireille Enos, who plays Detective Sarah Linden, told TV Guide, while showrunner Veena Sud opened up about the theme of the season.

"This season is about whether seemingly irredeemable people can be redeemed. Can a guy like [convicted wife killer] Seward, who's done horrible things, find redemption? Can the deeply selfish Danette [Kallie's mother] transform into something better?"

As for Sarah and Holder (Joel Kinnaman), their relationship is going strong despite Sarah's new boyfriend and Holder's new partner.

"Sarah and Holder have a wonderful relationship, and the way they support each other runs very deep," Enos explained to TV Guide.

As for Peter Sarsgaard, who plays death-row inmate Ray Seward, he couldn't be more excited to be involved in Season 3 of the revived drama.

"I think it’s going to be very emotionally gripping," Sarsgaard told The Hollywood Reporter of the new season. "This season -- having seen the other ones -- is a lot less contemplative. It’s a lot speedier and dynamic. It feels a lot more dangerous."
