[SBS/8:30pm] The Eagle: A Crime Odyssey. As the boundaries between international terrorism and organised crime become more and more blurred, Western nations find themselves increasingly threatened by violence and lawlessness on an unimaginable scale. In Denmark, a special unit is set up to fight international crime with links to similar teams across Scandinavia and around the world. On Thursday 15 March at 8.30pm, SBS Television will begin screening a new detective series, The Eagle: A Crime Odyssey. The Eagle is the code name for the charismatic detective Hallgrim Hallgrimsson (Jens Albinus). Called The Eagle for his unerring intuition, Hallgrimsson leads a team of crime fighters equipped with the most advanced technology and high-tech weapons. However his dynamic, self-assured and competent façade hides a tormented soul. The cases that he and his team tackle involve child pornography and the Israeli mafia in Berlin; a Congolese war criminal setting up shop in Europe; illegal arms trading within a respected corporation; and a suicide terrorist commando in Copenhagen. The cases are as varied as the international locations used in the series. The Eagle: A Crime Odyssey won the International Emmy for Best Drama in 2005. Creators Mai Brostrøm and Peter Thorsboe liken the character of Hallgrimsson to the mythical figure of Odysseus, whose travels not only lead him into danger but who also must wrestle with events from his past. The first episode sees Hallgrimsson, who is on his way to Iceland to visit his dying mother, called back to duty after a policeman is killed at Copenhagen airport. An anonymous English-speaking caller has told the police where to find the body and finished his call with one word – Jihad. Back in the capital, Thea Nullemann, the newly appointed Commissioner of Police is setting up a new section to fight crime on an international scale. The one person she wants on the team is Hallgrimsson.
Meanwhile, Sandberg, a well-known criminal identity, wins a court case and is about to leave Copenhagen airport on board his private jet. At his temporary command unit, Hallgrimsson slowly begins to fit the pieces of these seemingly disparate incidences together.
