We know that The Killing’s Detective Sarah Linden, played by Mireille Enos, is pretty distracted. With a squirrelly and possibly-backstabbing partner, rebellious teenage son, failed romance and that frustratingly unresolved “who killed Rosie Larsen” business, she doesn’t have much time to think about her clothes.
And honestly, there probably isn’t much room in Reggie’s houseboat—or that no-star motel—to store what’s left of Linden’s belongings (you know, what wasn’t packed and shipped down to Rick’s house in Sonoma). But we feel like the long suffering detective could do so much better sartorially.
Of course, Linden is a hard-working police detective who needs to fend off knife wielding attackers and chase after the wrong suspects at a moment’s notice (and if we believe the show, it apparently rains every freakin’ day in Seattle), but that doesn’t mean her wardrobe must only consist of itchy-looking non-ironic Fair Isle sweaters, ill-fitting stone-washed jeans and shapeless parkas.
We have a feeling that the detective is pretty set in her ways, so we’re not going too revolutionary, like switching out her trusty bootcuts for red skinny jeans or something. But before the two-hour April 1 season premiere of The Killing on AMC, we’d like to suggest a few wardrobe upgrades that work with Linden’s lifestyle and profession–and flatter her natural beauty. Next up: getting Holder out of the crusty hoodie that he wears every day.
