Many of the criminal cases in the series are based on true Danish cases, although modified for dramatic purposes. The disclaimer in the credits reads: "'Rejseholdet' er fiktion, med fiktive karakterer, inspireret af virkelige hændelser" ('Rejseholdet' is fiction, with fictional characters, inspired by real events').

This series only began (on SBS TV) here in Australia around a month ago, and I'm already hooked!! Whilst not the best or the most original cop show there is, it's well made, and the stories are believable, and the characters of the police are well drawn. Mostly, I like the balance between the crime-of-the-week and the personal lives of the detectives, where the latter never ever seems to overshadow the former, as it should be, but the personal insights into regular characters gives them substance and dimension.
I'd recommend it to anyone who likes their crime shows on TV to be straight-forward and without too much fanfare and sensation.
