When Johan Falk and his team watch through the secretly taped video of the villains admitting to their crimes, they complain about that they cannot use it as evidence since they lacked the proper paperwork before rigging the camera and microphones. As policemen in a Special Crime Unit they should be very much aware of that the Swedish legal system accept ALL kind of evidence. Even those that are obtained through illegal ways.

I've watched "Johan Falk" 2009 series one by one, and believe me, this series rocks, even I don't quite like the actor who played Johan Falk 'cause he got a very crooked mouth like somebody suffered minor stroke, but it didn't affect his great performance in the whole series so far. Almost every episode of this series is dynamic with great screenplays, directed so well, and the suspenses never turned flat, and the Johan Falk guy is a tough, smart, fearless and hands-on guy who always did his job 110%. But I just don't why this episode suddenly turned him into a lamer with stupid decisions on and on with unforgivable judgments again and again. With different screenplay writers perhaps further jeopardized his attractive persona in a quite unbalanced performances in each episode. In this episode and several episodes before it, Johan Falk appeared to be less and less aggressive and more and more reserved and indecisive either by himself and by the tighter control of his superior officers. All in all with these bad factors said, this episode is a huge below average disappointment.
