Continuity 

When Jordy first saw Daphne she had her hair down and was wearing a collared blouse, but when he gave the description she was drawn with a ponytail with a blue holder, and straps on bare shoulders. When we next see Daphne she is wearing exactly what she was in the drawing, even though no one had yet seen her in that outfit.

When Eddie is talking to Jordy in the burned-down crime scene, his cigar disappears between shots. It is possible that Eddie has taken the cigar out of his mouth off-screen, but it would have had to happen very quickly.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Emil says that he will fake insanity and have himself declared unfit for trial. This, he says, will result in his being committed to a psychiatric institution where he will miraculously recover and be protected from further trial by the "double jeopardy" laws. While his being "unfit for trial" would, indeed, prevent him from being tried, meaning that "double jeopardy" wouldn't apply, we can, perhaps, excuse his incomplete grasp of the subtleties of foreign law and language, and accept that his plan would work if he stood trial and was declared "not guilty by reason of insanity".
