Goofs

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.

A very good show (small spoiler)
27 August 2014 | by (Lawrence, Kansas) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show when it was available on Netflix. I bought the DVD's from Amazon but the region free player I bought to play the discs was crap. I am disappointed that the discs are not available for play on US players.

The main story about the lead investigator (Hallgrim...The Eagle....he sees things from the big picture)....is interesting though ultimately collapses into the re-tread plot of most British and Scandinavian shows (inappropriate sex).

The first three episodes were best for me...the Russian bad guy Sergej was really good and the cat and mouse with The Eagle was interesting. That actor stars in the Danish The Protectors...and is quite good there.

Later episodes seemed to overuse the plots of so many British and American shows....but I guess it is fair that the foreign police procedurals use the same criminal issues faced across the globe.

The show gives good insight into the multi-cultural nature of the European countries. Unlike a show like MI-5 there is not criticism of U.S. policies as I recall.

Sufficient to say that the main characters are interesting, the acting is good, the scenery and venues are good and the theme song is awesome.
