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.

This series is wonderful to watch. You come to love the characters and appreciate how the characters react to one another and to the circumstances in which they find themselves. Like all TV shows, it is difficult to believe that they can actually escape some of the situations they find themselves in, and there are some technical errors and plot holes, but I really enjoyed the "European" approach to crime and drama which you simply do not see in American shows (no ditzy lab assistant or "funny" characters). This series is not quite up to the standards of the Swedish "Girl" Trilogy, but it is thoroughly enjoyable. My actual rating would be 8.3 out of 10, but I don't have that choice.
