Accident struck the filming of this series only two weeks into the shooting as one of the leading actors, Jens Albinus, tripped on stage while performing in a play in Copenhagen and broke his leg. See more »
In the first episode, the crime scheme is compromised by plot holes. The plan seems to depend on a risky diversion which in fact attracts the attention of the police to the crime scene rather than the opposite. It is also not explained why Sandberg, who is wanted by the police, would choose to land his plane in a place where he is sure to be arrested, and the whole criminal plan comes to depend on how he fares in court.

I do not have 'regular' television. US and Mexican TV drives me crazy, so now I watch Netflix, Amazon, and rent / buy movies. A logical sequence to finding these great programs, is The Millennium Trilogy', Annika Bengtzon Crime Reporter, The Eagle, and I have not yet looked The Protectors.
At times the plots are a little complicated, but that makes re-viewing even better. Great character studies, insight into other cultures, no moronic commercials, free, what can be better!
I have not finished the first season yet, but am very happy that that are many more yet to see.
