Nicolas Freeling - The Characters
Inspector Van Der Valk
Inspector Van der Valk of the Amsterdam Police is a policeman, an intellectual, and an iconoclast. In addition to his appreciation of affairs of the mind, he enjoys good food, especially when it is prepared by his wife, Arlette, an excellent cook. In 1969, Van der Valk was made Chief Inspector of the Juvenile Brigade of Amsterdam after being an Inspector of Criminal Police for more than ten years, in his new assignment, he finds he has much still to learn. His long experience has not inured him to the heartbreak of crime and the drug habit when the young people are affected.
