Walter Presents is heading back to the Netherlands for season 3 of Dutch drama The Blood Pact (Klem).
A reminder of the premise of the series as a whole for anyone who may not yet have seen the first two seasons: Two years after becoming a widow, Hugo is struggling to balance his work life and being a single dad to two daughters. Little does he know his life is about to get a whole lot more complicated when his 8-year-old befriends the daughter of a prolific ex-criminal.
Work-obsessed Hugo is applying for the Vice Presidency of the Dutch revenue and customs service. Meanwhile, Marius has just been released from an 8-year prison sentence for murder and is elated to be reunited with his wife and daughter in the outside world. However, not all is plain sailing; Marius still owes money to dangerous people, and the police are closely following his every move. When Hugo finds out that his daughter Suus is best friend with Marius’ daughter Chrissie, he worries for her safety. But when the two fathers are forced together by a freak accident, they too become friends, and Hugo finds himself drawn deeper into a dangerous web. Ultimately both men must decide how far they are prepared to go to protect their family.
Season 3 details below the series trailer. These include SPOILERS for the first two seasons – so stop reading at this point if you’re not all caught up.
After being fired from the Tax Authorities, Hugo is embittered. He was so close to being appointed as the new State Secretary of Finance and now he has to start all over again. All he can think of is to start a tax consultancy office, but having made the headlines for weeks, his only clients are wannabe and real criminals. But when the FIOD comes to him with a risky deal, he decides to seize this last opportunity. As a result, his life becomes inadvertently again dangerously intertwined with that of Marius Milner and his wife Kitty van Mook, who want to start a new life and end up back in crime through will and misunderstanding.
Jacob Derwig won Best Actor in a TV Drama at the Netherlands Film Festival for his role as Marius. Viewers may recognise Barry Atsma, playing Hugo, from Walter Presents: Bad Banks.
The full season three boxset (10 episodes) is available on Walter Presents via All 4 from Friday, 2nd July.
