The American version of hit Danish crime thriller The Killing has been cancelled for a second time. The drama, starring Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, was first axed in 2012 but was brought back to life after network bosses struck a deal with online streaming site Netflix.
However, The Killing has now been cancelled again due to falling viewer figures.
A statement from Fox Television studios confirms TV bosses will not be moving forward with a fourth season: "Fox Television Studios is extremely proud of all three seasons of The Killing... (We are) immensely grateful to everyone involved with this moving series: our brilliant cast, led by Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman and season three's Peter Sarsgaard, our stellar executive producer, Veena Sud, a remarkable writing and producing team, and a tireless, dedicated crew. Most of all, (we thank) the terrific fans of The Killing, who communicated their appreciation for the show throughout its run."
The Danish original starring Sofie Grabol became a huge international hit and ran for three seasons.
The Killing star is a single mum after going through a divorce, and as a result she has to be picky about her projects.
Grabol admits she has been offered a number of theatre roles, but had to put her family first.
She tells London's Evening Standard, "I've been offered theatre here but I have a seven-and a 10-year-old. If you have children you'll know how hard it is."
British royal Prince Charles and his wife have been touring Scandinavia, and Camilla took the opportunity to get a peek behind the scenes of the show.
She was greeted on set by actress Sofie Grabol, and wore headphones as she saw a scene being filmed via a monitor, according to the Associated Press.
It was the second time in two days Grabol met Camilla - they were both guests at the Royal Palace in Copenhagen on Monday night (26Mar12).
Speaking about the evening, Grabol says, "It's a little bit fun, and really unexpected that they're fans. It's the ultimate proof that the series reaches a broad audience, both high and low."
The Wire star Elba was named the Best Actor for his role in British TV series Luther, while Rafe Spall took the Best Supporting Actor trophy for The Shadow Line.
Jeff Bridges' western True Grit won the Film Dagger prize, but it was hit series The Killing which dominated the London ceremony.
The Danish drama landed the International TV Dagger award, while its stars Sofie Grabol and Ann Eleonora Jorgensen were named Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively.
