David Owe's part was originally meant for a "classic", overweight, chainsmoking, coca cola-drinking geek, but after his audition the part was rewritten to fit him. 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've been streaming "The Eagle" on our Roku this week. What a gem! Produced in Denmark, it is a great series with stunningly beautiful shots of the Icelandic landscape, various other parts of Scandinavia, with very haunting theme music. You have to read subtitles but get used to it and will end up learning a bit of Danish. Hallgrimm is such a strong but flawed lead character and the series is so well written-watch it if you can. Jens Albinus is a wonderful actor.The rest of the supporting cast represent very believable characters. Each episode ties to the last. Watch one episode and you'll be watching all 24.A very entertaining diversion.
