Did You Know?


The character Katharina keeps having her name spelled with an H. Hailing from a Slavic country this is impossible as no Slavic language spells it with an H (Slavic languages do not have silent letters). Therefore, the proper spelling should be "Katarina". See more »

It's good!
20 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The first episode makes you wonder where it's going. The second episode gives you hope. And after the third episode you're hooked: you just want to see the next one....

The series is well played, well made and pretty realistic - though there are some minor mistakes and 'over the top' scenes. Also a government service like the Protectors probably doesn't exist in any country, not in this form anyway. Well, so be it: I like it a lot, there's a lot of believable action, the characters are realistic and so are the situations. It is at least as good as 'the Eagle' (made by the same people) or that other great Danish series 'the Killing'. Don't know who made that.

Just go and see it when you won't be disappointed!
