Karl Roebuck, a laid-back British detective. Roebuck's role parallels that of Martin Rohde (played by 'Kim Bodnia'), the Danish detective in The Bridge. Both characters share some characteristics, even though Karl is a bigger change from Martin, for instance Karl is "more educated and a more troubled man." Dillane was drawn to the political questions raised in the storyline, as well as the series' "novelistic telling".
