The Protectors Season 2 Episode 20: Route 27

The Protectors_Route 27 Title Shot

A man is found in a city dump but luckily saved by the bullet-proof vest he wore, the other body found wasn’t so lucky. It is Harry Rule and the police have put a security detail on his hospital room. Harry calls the Contessa for help because he is in danger. He was on the trail of a heroine smuggling group when he was shot and he has some information on the whereabouts of 40kg. of heroine. Harry is dead set on exposing this drug smuggling group so he needs a smaller police presence than is normally needed and instead will use the Contessa. A bit of icing sugar and away he goes.

Personal Synopsis

Drug smuggling in Copenhagen, a story that could go anywhere. Harry becomes the ambassador/vigilante for a grieving father who lost his son to drug addiction. An episode where Harry’s tougher than nails character shows his human side, and small parts in Danish. I enjoyed the episode and laughed at the silly somewhat unimpressive drug lord.
