Stephen HolderPlayed by Joel Kinnaman
Holder has been working with a new partner, a seasoned well-respected detective named Carl Reddick who's been on the force for 20 years. The Holder of Season 3 is more confident, ambitious, and better dressed than the green detective of Seasons 1 and 2. He's got a new grown-up life, studying for the sergeant's exam and dating an assistant district attorney. But when a new case begins and Sarah Linden re-enters his life, he'll have to decide what kind of detective he really is.
