- Crowning Music of Awesome: The closing music, which combines high-paced and moody to such great effect the Americans used it themselves.
- Stoic Woobie: Lund, unsurprising given all the crap she goes through. By the end of season three she's a fully-fledged Broken Bird.

Anton: Dad, how did she die?

- The Woobie: Theis and Pernille Birk-Larsen, especially Pernile.
