In episode 1, Thorkild Thyrring is the driver of the blue Ford Sierra whereas Erik Høyer drives the green Toyota (the police vehicle). The jump where the Toyota lands on its front bumper almost flipped it onto its roof. This was far from intentional. Thorkild Thyrring first tried the jump successfully, and Erik Høyer inquired of him: "How fast do you go?". "About 60 km/h is fine", Thorkild replied. However, the Ford Sierra had rear wheel drive whereas the Toyota had front wheel drive. Therefore, the difference between the two vehicles when performing the jump was so great that it nearly caused a serious accident. However, the Toyota eventually landed back on its wheels, and the director decided to keep the shot. This "unsuccessful" jump is therefore the one shown in the series. See more »

One of the finest moments for Danish TV.
20 April 2004 | by (Hillerød, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This little five episode gem is unquestionable remembered by most people born before 1975. When it first aired, it was the talk of the country. It seemed like all the big actors were lined up to get a part in it, and the storyline all throughout the five hours is fantastic.

It's hard to point your finger at something that isn't good about this production. One might say a limited budget, and sure, Danish TV will always be of limited means, but that's about it. It has great actors in practically all the roles, the writing is magnificent, the plot is quite unique, the car chase in episode one made everybody gasp for air when it was finally over with, a great atmosphere of tension surrounds every minute, the directing is great and even the title song ("Sjæl i flammer" by Casper Winding) was a gigantic hit.
