Many of the criminal cases in the series are based on true Danish cases, although modified for dramatic purposes. The disclaimer in the credits reads: "'Rejseholdet' er fiktion, med fiktive karakterer, inspireret af virkelige hændelser" ('Rejseholdet' is fiction, with fictional characters, inspired by real events').

Yep, I too love the series, shown here in Australia on SBS. When it's on I fire up google earth and get my aerial view of the crime scene in Denmark! Charlotte Fich, and Trine Pallesen are gorgeous although some people say that Charlotte looks a bit like New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clarke (well Helen Clarke would do well if she looked more like Charlotte)!
Some things puzzle me a little, First is the video "treatment", it seems to have some "texture" or treatment which puzzles me a little as it looks like it has passed through analogue production processes.
Second is one of the bridges in the opening title sequence. Is this bridge the one between West Zeeland (Vastsjaelland) and Fyns?
Well done to the team at "Rejseholdet", and glad IMDb has the literal translation of the original title.
