Did You Know?


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').

Fantastic TV-production showing real cases
23 December 2002 | by (Randers, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I totally disagree with Henrik Bro Jorgensen who has given another comment on this series.

I think this TV-Series is a one-of-a-kind, though Henrik claims it's just like "any other" American cop-series. It's not! The series focuses on different cases which have been solved by the real Danish "Rejseholdet" (a mobile police unit). However, it looks into the characters working in the police force. How are they influenced by their work, and what happen when they are off duty.

It's definately not as violent as for instance N.Y.P.D Blue, but it still has a touch of excitement - and the thing I like the most - gives examples on how the police actually works.

Many of these Danish actors and actresses seemed a bit "unprofessional" in the beginning, but I must say that all of them grew with the part.

The series just won an iEmmy for best TV Drama series - meaning that it apparently do touch the viewers no matter what.

I'm really looking forward to the two last episodes which are just to be filmed. Two episodes supposed to show what happened to all the policemen (and women) when their unit was closed down (this also happened in reality, though it ended up not closing for good anyway).

If you get the chance, check out the series - it also goes under the title "Unit One". It's definately worth a look!
