Nice series, whit a lot of factual mistakes/creative freedoms
30 October 2013 | by michaelwesten-264-479236See all my reviews

I actually like the series, its here and there cleverly made, and the cast is also pretty good.

But i just really hate it, the way Americans just got real easy important factual things wrong, and in this series there are some thats just really annoying.

First, of all, i am pretty sure the headquarters of any police force would not be located in side a Parliament building, and there are plenty of other old buildings to pick from, but serious to pick the parliament building, It would be like it was located in the US Congress building. o_0

Second, why did creators make the EU sorta look shortsighted, whit the elimination of most of the European internal borders, it became clear at the same time that there was also a need for more dedicated police force like the FBI in the EU, and that Interpol was not cutting it any more, so in 1992 the creation of Europol was decided, and operations started 1998.

Third, and above all the abuse of the "International Criminal Court" (ICC), that has no jurisdiction at all in any EU country other then what it has in any country that has ratified the "ICC" international treaty.

The scope of what the ICC is and dose totally different then what is assumed in the series,and i really hate these kind of artistic reedoms, as the ICC is (imho) a important institute, and the last resort ware people can go to, to get justice, when there is in there home country no justice.

Quote Wikipedia: "The International Criminal Court is a permanent tribunal to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression"

The only one that could very very maybe have the jurisdiction to sanction a group like these police officers, would be the "European Court of Justice", but what would be the point, as Europol dose the same thing. >_<
