Trivia

The town that is shown in Hallgrim's flashbacks is actually a fishing town located on a island just on the south coast of Iceland. The island, Vestman-Island, is also shown a great part in season 2. See more »

Goofs

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.

Great Show
12 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

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.
