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.

I've been streaming "The Eagle" on our Roku this week. What a gem! Produced in Denmark, it is a great series with stunningly beautiful shots of the Icelandic landscape, various other parts of Scandinavia, with very haunting theme music. You have to read subtitles but get used to it and will end up learning a bit of Danish. Hallgrimm is such a strong but flawed lead character and the series is so well written-watch it if you can. Jens Albinus is a wonderful actor.The rest of the supporting cast represent very believable characters. Each episode ties to the last. Watch one episode and you'll be watching all 24.A very entertaining diversion.
