SARAH LUND

The popular Danish crime series, The Killing, has had a ferm grip on me for it clings you to the screen! Two things struck me when i watched a few episodes: the character of Sarah Lund.... and the jumper!. Find out yourself what you think about the character, i just would like to mention it's an interesting way of marketing a handknitted jumper. 
In an interview with 'the Guardian' Sofie (Sarah Lund) stated that she picked out this jumper because it's unpolice-like, and it does not add to her sexuality. Quite a new approach to feminine police women in series! The jumper becoming a bespoken item and international FASHION HIT was not foreseen i suppose..

Note: the knit is traditional Faroese. The Faroe Islands lie to the north of Schotland an archipelago under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark. The undyed organic wool comes from hardy northern black and white sheep. It's lightweight, breathable and hypoallergenic. Who would've thought!
