They’re the type of victims who can go missing for days, weeks, months or years and no one notices until detective Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) catches the case of a dead teen working girl and contacts his former partner Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) because he sees a connection to a case from her past. Several Vancouver area streets play “The Jungle” from Columbia Street in New Westminster to Raymur Street under the Hastings Overpass to Gore Street in the Downtown Eastside.
Police” until she goes too far mouthing off to him and Holder snaps, “You want to act like a man.Using his legal training, the railroad president methodically tilted the plane of Pennsylvania’s criminal justice system to serve his interests.His power grab extended to Pennsylvania’s judicial, legislative, and executive branches of government.Seward’s world in prison is deeply interior in contrast to the vibrant, messy world of “The Jungle”.Filmed in the Burnaby Youth Detention Centre, Riverview in Coquitlam and studio, the prison world is dark, cold, cement and metal bars. Aaron Douglas is one of the prison guards and Nicholas Lea one of his death-row cell mates.When Holder visits her on Vashon Island, he teases her about her much younger Vashon Island ferry worker boyfriend Cody (with scenes filmed on Bowen Island and the Queen of Capilano): “Ain’t that sweet, Linden’s dating.” “I’m not dating.” “Booty callin’ then.
Dial 1-900-Linden.” He deliberately leaves the case file of the street girl killing behind and she eventually pursues it to the pond of bodies.
But even incarcerated, Seward is good at manipulating people,with the exception of Hugh Dillon of Flashpoint as his nemesis, the veteran death row C. Ray Seward’s weakness is his love for his son Adrian, played by Rowan Longworth, who stayed with his mother’s corpse for six days and drew the “Picasso drawing” of a grove of trees which haunted Sarah Linden long after the case.
When Linden visited him at his foster home, she spied a new sketch on his wall of the trees but with buildings added — one of which was season three’s opening crime scene at an abandoned factory.
Lieutenant James Skinner (Elias Koteas), her former partner, lover and now head of Seattle’s Special Investigations Unit, brings her back onto the Seattle police force, still rocking the Nordic sweaters, jeans, boots and black raincoat.
Elias Korteas’s Skinner was Linden’s partner three years ago investigating the death of Trisha Seward, whose husband Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard) sits on death row convicted of her killing and awaiting execution with a ticking clock. Although she was older than the other victims Trisha Seward was a hooker and the manner of her death mirrors those of the teen working girls — throat cut and trophies taken. Skinner asks Linden to stop picking apart a “solve” and to focus on the street girl killings, but that’s not her style.
Holder takes it stride.:”Bugs Bunny’s the bomb” he declares.
