The first couple of episodes are shot-by-shot. Then, it veers off, more and more as it goes.

And AFAIC, the differences almost all weaken the story. (A notable exception is Holder, who is a much more interesting character in the American version...in the Danish one, he serves only to be a dick-headed obstruction to Linden, and then
Spoiler:
to die because of Linden's stubborn disregard for protocol.

Is Season 3 a complete killing 2.0 or is there a carryover to a fourth season like season's 1+2?

Season 3 is complete - there will be some character stuff that will carry over, but the killer is revealed.

I'm somewhere between 'if you have nothing else to watch and don't bother'.

I watched S01, ditched out for S02, and watched S03 (because S03 was supposed to be, and it was, a whole new case). I don't think I'll be back. There are many WAY better crime dramas out there, IMO. way

Aside from the really bad character writing, it just always felt to me like they were trying too hard.

I watched S3. It was better than the first two seasons. It is better than most TV cop shows, but that's not saying much. Mostly it was a way to kill some time until Breaking Bad came back. I like Holder. Not a fan of Mirielle Enos.

I just finished season 2, two many plot turns and generally felt like they could have skipped 10 -15 episodes out of the 26 and wouldn't have felt like I missed anything.

All those complaining should switch over and watch Broadchurch. Very similar premise to The Killing (S1/2) -- child murdered, everyone seems to be hiding something. But it's 8 episodes and it's done, so everything is more compact/streamlined.

I will say, though, there's more humor in The Killing (Holder is a gas) and I'm probably going to be in the minority to say the acting is at least on par, and in some cases better. The parents in The Killing (IMO) did a fantastic job; the ones in Broadchurch were just less accessible, somehow.

Anyhow, all the recent complaints are pretty much addressed in Broadchurch.

Plus that cliff is awesome to watch -- almost a character in its own right.
