Trivia

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 »

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.

Great Alternative Entertainment
11 March 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

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.
