Continuity 

After Dani witnesses the copulation of Christian and Maja, she vomits as she runs out of the archive building. When Christian runs out of the archive building, the vomit has gone or already dried even though it has only been a few minutes.

Errors in geography 

The Americans react to the sun being up late at night. The sun doesn't set until after 10:30 PM in the area around midsummer, but the lack of long shadows reveals that the scene does not take place in the late evening at 61° North (where the story takes place) but rather around noon at 47° North (Hungary, where the supposed Swedish scenes are actually filmed).

Factual errors 

The outfits the villagers of Hårga wear during the celebrations are vyshyvankas, which is part of the Ukrainian and Belarusian national costumes, not the national or regional costumes of Sweden and Hälsingland.

When Simon is found in the barn, his lungs have been pulled through his back, but he is still alive and breathing. The lungs are inflated and deflated by the diaphragm and the muscles in the trunk; once they were pulled out, he would immediately suffocate.

Miscellaneous 

The sun is referred to in terms as "father", but in Scandinavian cultures the sun is often referred to as feminine because the Norse word for sun is a feminine gendered noun. For example, in Norse mythology the Sun is said the be dragged through the sky in a chariot by a goddess.

For the whole mating ritual thing they do, the whole purpose is to have the highest success in pregnancy, but if the girl just had her period the other day (to put the blood in the drink) then she wouldn't be ovulating yet. So the chances of pregnancy wouldn't be that high.

While the visual transition is well done cinematically, the inside of an airplane's lavatory door looks much different than depicted in the plane. Additionally, the "lock" sign is pointing in the wrong direction, the coat hook is upside down, and there is no door handle to open the door from the inside, just a pull mechanism to close the door. But this is not a bi-fold door, so that would not work and Dani would be stuck in the lavatory.

Plot holes 

The firemen responding to Dani's parents house are not wearing their breathing masks. With there clearly being enough CO to have killed everyone in the house, they would quickly be overcome themselves.

Revealing mistakes 

When Dani sees grass growing out of her hand, her fingers are oddly chubby and discolored, indicating that her hand is either a prosthetic or poorly done CGI. Upon closer inspection, it's clearly Pugh's hand from a low angle in different lighting than the rest of her body. CGI grass or not, it's clearly her own hand.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Anachronisms 

The way that Terri commits suicide is not feasible. She would not have been able to tape the hose into her mouth whilst the carbon monoxide was coming out. If she had somehow taped it on first and then set the car running, she would not have been able to go so far away in the house without dying first. In addition, the small amount of tape shown around Terri's mouth is nowhere near enough to keep a hose that heavy in place.

At the end, when corpses are led to the temple with barrows, crane rails can be seen on the left.
