AMC network has pronounced “The Killing” dead.

The network said Friday the murder whodunit won’t be returning for a third season.

The announcement comes as no surprise. A dwindling audience for the series reflected widespread viewer frustration about how the mystery unfolded involving who killed Seattle teen Rosie Larsen.

Series stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman were widely praised for their performances as the dogged detectives trying to crack the crime.

“The Killing” concluded its second season last month.
