A&E investigates Those Who Kill

It’s been in development since the pilot was ordered in July 2012.

But US cable network A&E has now greenlit a 10×60′ season of its adaptation of Danish crime drama Those Who Kill.

The original series, produced by Miso Film for TV2 Denmark, is based on the novels by Elsebeth Egholm about a female police detective who tracks down serial killers while partnering with a forensic psychiatrist.
