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 »
In the first episode, the crime scheme is compromised by plot holes. The plan seems to depend on a risky diversion which in fact attracts the attention of the police to the crime scene rather than the opposite. It is also not explained why Sandberg, who is wanted by the police, would choose to land his plane in a place where he is sure to be arrested, and the whole criminal plan comes to depend on how he fares in court.

I was surprised that this series ran from 2004-2006. It has the feel of a 1980s British cop show. Bergerac sprang to mind. The main character has about as much personality as Bergerac (i.e. none). It has wooden acting, amateurish directing, so-so cinematography and a seriously annoying soundtrack. It's badly dated. I've only watched the first series, so maybe it'll get better. Based on this and the other Danish TV series The Killing (which had ridiculous plots with holes in a mile wide - but at least the production was better quality), I can't say I'm now a fan of Danish cop shows. All the Swedish ones I've watched were way better - Beck, Wallander, Arne Dahl.
