Storyline

In this Dutch police detective series, Detective Jurriaan 'Jurre' de Cock is sort of the 'Columbo' of a Dutch police city's police department, as deceptively poor in appearance (cheap raincoat) but always able to outsmart the crooks, usually a murderer per episode. He does however have a competent team, especially his young, promising right-hand Detective Dick Vledder and the more modest, often separately standard-researching Detective Albert 'Appie' Keizer, while Chief Corneel Buitendam is not too helpful; another regular is forensic examiner Dr. Ennaeus den Koninghe. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

During development, Herman van der Zwan, then head of John de Mol Produkties, asked his acquaintance Toots Thielemans if he would be interested in performing the title theme to Baantjer (1995). The famous Belgian mouth organ player came up with a theme he called "A Lonely Detective in Rotterdam". But since the series takes place in Amsterdam and the lead detective is happily married, Van der Zwan had to give Thielemans a few more pointers. Eventually the theme became known as "Circle of Smiles". See more »

Great show!
17 January 2007 | by ann_dutchgirlSee all my reviews

Baantjer is a great show! (not crap at all) Every Friday night, here in the Netherlands, I watch it with my family and it's a very exciting show. The person who wrote the other review has probably never seen Baantjer because if he had, he wouldn't have called it crap! Also, it's not true that the only reason for watching Baantjer is because famous stars appear on screen every time because they never have famous people on Baantjer! Baantjer is just a great, funny and exciting Dutch show, that would never make it in the USA because it has too much Dutch culture. But that's not a reason for people to comment negatively on it! And If you ever go to the Netherlands, check it out! (You'll definitely fall in love with it!
