I must be an anomaly because I never got bent out of shape about the Rosie Larsen cliffhanger. It didn't infuriate me; in fact, I looked forward to the complex mystery continuing on. I didn't pay any attention to any pronouncements AMC or Sud may have made about the storyline being all wrapped up in one season, and didn't care. I watched the show for the atmosphere and acting. Maybe I'm just used to serialized shows - basically all I care about on TV - continuing beyond the end of one season. In any event, all the kerfuffle seemed to be much ado about nothing. I thought the second season, and the eventual resolution, was terrific television.
Looking forward to the new season and more Sarah Linden in more bulky sweaters, more twitch-perfect Steven Holder, more convoluted, twisty-turnie mysteries, and more gloomy rain! Bring it on.
