Walter Presents: Dutch drama Amsterdam Vice

WALTER PRESENTS: AMSTERDAM VICE (Baantjer het Begin) is an original prequel to the series of novels written by A.C. Baantjer, the most successful Dutch book franchise of all time.

It’s Amsterdam, 1980s. Detective Judd Cox has just been promoted to the roughest department within the capital city’s police force. Along with his new partner Montijn, the pair are investigating a murder case that leads to 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 attack. Based on historical facts, Amsterdam Vice combines hi-octane moments with emotional depth. A character-driven drama, about two unlikely detective buddies, is like Amsterdam itself: gritty, yet warm-hearted and witty.

As a side note – viewers in the United States can currently watch the first four seasons of The Baantjer Mysteries – which ran for 12 years on Dutch TV from 1995 to 2006 and starred Piet Römer as Judd Cox (Jurre de Cock) – on MHz Choice.

The full season boxset (8 episodes) is available on Walter Presents via All 4 from Friday, 5 March. The first episode premieres on Channel 4 on Sunday, 7 March at 11.00 PM.
