The Killing: A Guide To Making A Crime Classic | 10. The Jumper
10. The Jumper

Even if you’ve never seen an episode of The Killing, you’ll know about Sarah Lund’s jumper. This is not Danish fashion; instead it is Faroese (i.e. from The Faroe Islands, the country that always loses 8-0 in Euro qualifiers) and is made from undyed organic wool from indigenous sheep. It has also spawned its own website — www.sarahlundsweater.com.

“It’s a mystery to me why people go on about it. I guess it is the same as Sherlock Holmes’ pipe. It’s strange but it is definitely an icon for the show. It was Sofie’s choice. Sofie said, “This is not a character who wants to show her sexuality. Can I hide my sexuality?” I thought it was a very good idea because she is Sofie Gråbøl, she has a special glow around her. You can dress her down so dramatically and she still shines through. We wanted it not to play on her sexuality and in a strange kind of way it made her more sexy.”

The Killing Series III is released on DVD on Dec 17th, The Killing Trilogy (feat series 1-3) is released on both Blu-ray & DVD on the same day.
