The Killing (or Forbrydelsen) finished its three season run last year and while this isn’t a show that is particularly cheery the cast has reunited to make a video promoting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. Over the past few years the Sarah Lund jumper has been much discussed and emulated, particularly in the UK where the Danish show has been a big hit for BBC4.
There has been a slew of imitation Scandi style knitwear in fashion magazines and on the high street and this winter has seen an increase of different types of novelty jumpers. Everyone is getting in on the action from supermarkets to designer labels like Burberry Prorsum and Stella McCartney this year, featuring everything from snowflakes to Santa. You can opt for the more subtle Sarah Lund style or you can go full on bright and bold; there’s plenty of options.
In the video Sarah Lund is the only one who has worn her festive sweater and she makes the rounds asking why her colleagues aren’t wearing theirs. The tone of the video is like a standard episode of The Killing which makes it even more amusing. It also reminds me how much I miss this character and Sofie Gråbøl. Look at how ridiculously adorable she is in the Viking hat and plaits.
