A&E Orders Pilot for Adaptation of Danish Crime Drama, Those Who Kill

Den som dræber (Those Who Kill, Danish crime drama, 2011)

Earlier this year A&E announced it had acquired the US development rights to the 5-episode Danish crime drama Den som dræber (Those Who Kill), which aired on TV2 during the Spring of 2011. (When the series was not renewed, a 6th episode was filmed to provide an ending, which was shown theatrically.)

Now we're learning that the cable network has ordered a pilot for the series. Glen Morgan will write the screenplay.

Den som dræber is based on an original concept by Danish crime novelist Elsebeth Egholm. The overall storyline follows a fictitious unit within Copenhagen Police that specializes in investigating serial murders.

You can watch the trailer for the series (in Danish) below, which gives a sense of what the show is about.
