Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Monday

Those Who Kill 10 p.m. A&E

We can safely assume that if Chloe Sevigny is portraying a detective on TV, her character is not going to be the kind tight-jawed investigator seen in the tangle of current network cop shows. Sevigny’s strengths are found in her compelling and brave performances. She doesn’t disappoint in this suspenseful adaptation of the Danish series, “Den Som Draeber,” created by author Elsebeth Egholm. The first episode is a showcase for Sevigny’s deeply flawed Catherine Jensen, a new homicide detective working in the Pittsburgh Police Department. She tracks a serial killer with the help of a mysteriously creepy academic forensic psychologist (played by James D’Arcy). It’s a gripping debut, and we’re looking forward to seeing where this story goes.

Southern Charm 10 p.m. Bravo


Welcome to the inner world of South Carolina’s genteel high society. That’s the premise anyway, but I think we all know what happens next: The polite veneer is stripped away, and you find that these young, entitled children of socialites and politicians are back-stabbing their way through Charleston’s upper class and generally behaving like a pack of feral barn cats in heat. It’s all fun and games until someone gets pregnant.
