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.

Scandinavia produces a lot of good quality crime drama and The Eagle is a an excellent example.
This detective drama shares a lot in common with US series like Crossing Lines. Its a mix of cross border policing, of mostly high profile cases, combined with a dash of intelligence work.
This police unit frequently work with Danish and other intelligence agencies and other police forces from neighbouring countries like Sweden and Norway.
The style of this drama is down to earth and very matter of fact. Its refreshingly unpretentious and well acted. Each season has an overriding story that's built upon with side stories to keep things interesting.
All in all a recommended watch for crime drama enthusiasts tired of the run of the mill US/UK fare. Eight out of ten from me.
