BS. I never saw the Danish version and I think the AMC version was great.
You should watch it, if you like The Killing you'll abolutely love Forbrydelsen.

And no, I think AMC is bringing the show back because of it's high quality.
No way, AMC wouldn't know quality if it bites it in the ass. It doesn't even matter if you or I like or dislike The Killing. And it's not like the level of quality or critical reception changed between the cancellation and the revival, it's most likely that they realized that they really have nothing to fill the slots and replace their soon ending shows. AMC stumbled into all of their successes, they are not HBO or Showtime, they don't know how to handle original programming. Look at The Walking Dead, it's an incredible success and AMC's strategy since the first season seems to be "Slash the budget, piss off the talent" when thy should throw money at Mazzara right now telling him "Do what you want!" considering the ratings the show brings.
I completely agree. I'm not a fan of The Walking Dead, but it's the popular show is the history of cable TV. Give them whatever they want!
