Set in 1980s Amsterdam, this eight-part series is a prequel story to a series of detective novels by AC Baantjer, a Dutch writer who had a long career with the police. It centres on Detective Judd Cox (Waldemar Torenstra), who has just been promoted to the roughest department within the capital city’s police force.
Along with his new partner Montijn (Tygo Gernandt), he investigates a murder case in the unique historic city centre, and in the process discovers plans of an attack which would occur on the coronation day of Princess Beatrix. The duo must do everything in their power to stop such an incident. Watch the trailer here. Premieres in the UK on 7 March on Channel 4, and on 5 March on All4/Walter Presents.
