Ending sceen season 3 (spoiler)

Hi I just saw the last episode of season three. I know that the sceen with David Thewlis (VM Varga) is a reference to another movie or show. He talks about a higher ranked officer will come into the room and release him without the police woman beeing able to do anything about it. I know this is a reference to some tv show or movie, but I simply can remeber or find it on Google. Can anyone help me?
