A.C. Baantjer is one of the most widely read authors in the Netherlands and is also the author of Murder in Amsterdam (available from Turnaround). A former Detective Inspector of the Amsterdam Police, his fictional characters reflect the depth and personality of individuals encountered during his 38 year career in the police.
"DeKok's maverick personality makes him a compassionate judge of other outsiders and an astute analyst of antisocial behaviour." - The New York Times Book Review "Baantjer's Iaconic, rapid-fire storytelling has spun out a surprisingly complex web of mysteries." - Kirkus Reviews "It's easy to understand the appeal of Amsterdam police detective DeKok." - The Los Angeles Times"
