There are several instances in the series where technology becomes the issue of questionable plot devices. One clear-cut plot hole is when, in the fourth episode, we see Sergej track Hallgrim second-by-second on a computer screen using a transmitting device. Later we are told that the transmitter is of a type which only sends a signal every twenty minutes which enables the cops to remove the transmitter and copy its chip without Sergej noticing.

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.
