** I.P. His real first name is Jens-Peter, but he always goes by 'I.P.', even to his wife. One notable exception is an episode where he is subjected to an experiment with hypnosis, during which he is mentally regressed to the age of 8. He then continues to suffer from after-effects of the session throughout the episode, and at one point he excitedly answers a phone call by introducing himself as Jens-Peter, before quickly regaining his composure and correcting himself to 'I.P.'.
** Allan Fischer and Thomas LaCour are almost exclusively referred to as 'Fischer' and 'LaCour' within the team. In a few instances, this also happens outside the team.



* GenerationXerox: Ingrid notes that she chose to be a cop like her father and her grandfather. [[spoiler:Notably she also unknowningly shares some traits and mannerisms with Ulf, which, of course, is used as {{Foreshadowing}} to the fact that Ulf might be her biological father.]]



* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Søren, who dies in the sixth episode.]]
* PsychicPowers: While the show is very much grounded in reality, La Cour develops an increasingly stronger and somewhat supernatural sense of post-cognition as the series goes on, and he even starts developing some kind of clairvoyance to compliment it. These skills are never fully explained and is treated as MaybeMagicMaybeMundane, and La Cour, at least early on, prefers to explain them as just being his "intuition".

Added DiffLines:

* CluelessDetective: This trope is used to describe a lot of the local policeforces in general, in contrast to the more superior Rejsehold.

Added DiffLines:

* AmateurSleuth: On multiple occasions, Johnny Olsen involves himself with the team's work and current cases, despite not being a part of the team as an officer. He even mentions that if he hadn't become a football player, he would probably have become a police officer.

Added DiffLines:

* AccompliceByInaction: It is mentioned that a local police officer [[spoiler: Graf, in episode 4]] allegedly did nothing to prevent a suspect from dying, during an interrogation, despite him knowing first-aid.

Added DiffLines:

* AffirmativeActionGirl: Discussed in InUniverse. Many of the older male cops in the force accurses Ingrid behind her back of only having become leader of the Unit due to gender politics, and Ulf usually responds by claiming she got the post as part of a deal he made with the female police chief. However, as the series progresses, it becomes clear that Ulf genuinely holds Ingrid in great respect for her investigative skills, and it is implied that he just tells his male colleagues what they want to hear whenever the subject is brought up.
