Spotlight On…The Sweaters of Detective Sarah Linden

I’m mostly through season 2 of AMC’s The Killing (check local listings or your local Netflix) and it’s a fine television program. A better name for the series might be “It’s Always Raining in Seattle.” I hope the crew has some good watertight equipment and sturdy weatherproof shoes, or they’ll end up taking a bath – literally! Although they could very well have financial troubles for all we know.

Speaking of weather and clothes, it’s a notoriously cold day in New York City history today, with a projected high of 15 degrees. One thing that’s heating things up though is social media – everybody is talking about this weather.

Well, it’s cold out there all right, and I’ve got The Killing on my mind, so I figure there’s never been a better time for a Spotlight On… The Sweaters of Detective Sarah Linden.

Get me into any one of these sweaters on a cold winter’s day!

Toward the end of the first season I finally noticed that she only wears cozy, bulky sweaters underneath her detective-style anoraks. Because my finger is on the pulse I thought, “I bet some internet a-hole made a Tumblr for all of her sweaters. And if someone didn’t, then maybe I should be that a-hole!” Well folks, there’s two kinds of people in this world: people who make Tumblrs and people who write about making Tumblrs. Maybe there’s even three or four kinds of people, but I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew.

Detective Sarah Linden is a real pill. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t even know what Tumblr is. She’s humorless, she chews nicotine gum all the live long day, she doesn’t eat right, and she’s always losing track of her son. I don’t want to say she’s a bad parent because if she was a man no one would care, but she’s a pretty bad parent. I think she’s what the Hollywood insiders call flawed.

But her sweaters sure are warm and cozy. The original Danish series “Forbrydelsen” reveals a similar if not superior sweater game.

  6. One is if your cat spends a great deal of time in the litter pan – either at one time or entering it
    repeatedly. The real problem is that the whole reason we have things like mp3
    players and headphones is because we want to take our music wherever we want, and
    outdoors is where all the noise is. If you need a strong and durable exercise plate then you should consider purchasing one with the highest
    horsepower and strongest motor.
