In his time with the Amsterdam Police, Commissaris Piet van der Valk has seen it all. His cynicism sometimes shocks even his assistant Johnny Kroon. Their caseload brings them into contact with the city’s many subcultures from drug-users to sexual perverts. Van der Valk is known for his ability to break difficult cases by pursuing his famous hunches. His superior Hoofdcommissaris Samson, however, is always more concerned with the political and public relations ramifications of van der Valk’s investigations.
User Reviews: I’m a little surprised at the poor reviews. No, it’s not Barry Foster, not it’s not the same but it’s probably not just aimed at those who remember the original. Marc Warren makes a good fist of it, maybe overdoing slightly the moodiness but otherwise it’sa really solid performance. Not overly keen on the assistants but the coroner character is different. I enjoyed the plot to, enough twists to keep you thinking but not overdoing it. Looking forward to No2.
