This article tracks the uncanny locations of The Killing (2007–2012), relating them to place, space and atmosphere, putting bits and pieces from the topographic puzzle together with cues from the symbolic space in order to see how they fit into the overall pattern of Nordic Noir. In The Killing, the abstract level of space and atmosphere meets the concrete level of place, both influencing the notion of location.

This meeting, I suggest, has contributed towards the simultaneous domestic and international appeal of The Killing.
