Storyline

This popular fiction series follows the police officers in a precinct of Ghent (Flanders, Belgium), both professionally and in their private lives. Main characters include detectives like John Nauwelaerts and Raymond Jacobs, the gay Wilfried Pasmans who shakes his sissy image by moving from office - to field work, motorized cops such as Nick Debbaut and the ethnic Turks Selattin and Mihriban Ates. Other recurring characters include some of their relatives or partners, especially when those side-stories interact with their police work, as well as forensic and public prosecution officials.

Great show!
12 August 2002 | by (the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a great cop-show: The story lines are good. It's not just about murder or rape. And it doesn't have an spectacular car-chase every episode, like some shows. It's more realistic. They also have to solve burglaries, shoplifting, assault, stalking, vandalism etc, etc., like real cops have to do. You also get to know more and more about the background of the characters. Almost all the actors are fabulous (some of them look good as well!-But they aren't models) and last but not least it has humour. In short: It's just fun!!
