Bored of the Holidays Already? Knit Your Own 'The Killing' Sweater!

Danish television series 'The Killing' (a.k.a. 'Forbrydelsen') and AMC's remake, also called 'The Killing,' have more than a few things in common apart from the plot: Crabby expressions and those sweaters. In fact, the sweaters are such an integral part of the drama that we think it's about time they got co-starring credits.

Pay attention all you 'Killing' fans who are stuffed to the gills with turkey and want nothing more than to wrap yourself in comfy knitwear and sit sour-faced in front of the TV for the rest of the weekend: You can now do it Sarah Lund/Linden-style.

Whether you want to buy their sweaters from the Faroe Islands, or knit them yourself, we guarantee that all will be revealed after the jump.

In Season 1 of 'Forbrydelsen' Danish Det. Sarah Lund (Sofie Grabol) is never without her trusty off-white and brown woolly sweater. If you have 280 euros ($371) to spare this Black Friday you could be the lucky owner of a matching one.

Manufacturers Gudrun and Gudrun say the "traditional sweater" from the Faroe Islands is one of their bestselling lines, and is a favorite of Danish supermodel Helena Christensen. It even comes in mens' sizes so you can dress your favorite man up as Sarah Lund. Which wouldn't be weird at all ...

If that sweater's not to your tastes, then Gudrun and Gudrun also carry Lund's second favorite sweater from Season 1, the "Rutar," which also costs 280 euros.

Or, if you want to flaunt your 'Forbrydelsen'-ness, then how about Lund's Season 2 sweater? This jaunty red number (still woolly) with a textured star pattern on the yoke, is on sale for 240 euros. While Lund's U.S. counterpart, Det. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos), has a more extensive sweater collection, she frequently sports a navy "Killing 2."

Better still, why not knit your own? To celebrate Sarah's sweaters, 'The Radio Times' has published the knitting pattern for the "Killing 2" sweater. They also have a frankly hilarious gallery of 'Killing' fans posing in their best dour expressions and woolly sweaters. Enjoy!
