At the last episode of season 1 of The Bridge, Martin shoots the innocent girl on live-tv. He had to because he wanted to know more about his son, if he was still alive or not.

But this is still against the law. So why didn't he go to jail for this but only in therapy and he still kept his job?

I would suggest that Martin could have claimed coercion. The act isn't a defense for murder, but perhaps enough so in Danish law that the individual can claim coercion and receive treatment. http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/coercion
