Information on Van der Valk Mysteries: Set Two

Nothing electrifies Amsterdam cop Commissaris Simon "Piet" van der Valk (played by Barry Foster) like a new murder case in the second season of , based on characters created in the crime novels by Nicholas Freeling.

Once on the trail, the dapper detective goes by his instincts, not by the book. His investigations lead him into all corners of the Dutch capital, from the immigrant bars and apartments of the low-rent district to the boardrooms and deluxe hotels of the high and mighty.

Although he seems more than a little jaded, Van der Valk receives assistance from the eager Inspecteur Johnny Kroon (Michael Latimer) and indulgence from his ever-supportive French wife, Arlette (Susan Travers). And while he’s more likely to be at a pub than dealing with the political fallout of his cases, there’s never any doubt about his devotion to his job, nor the lengths to which he’ll go in his headlong pursuit to catch a killer.

The Van der Valk Mysteries: Set Two DVD set of 2 discs that contain the 7 episodes that originally aired on ITV from August through October 1973.
