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.

In the first series of Flikken (1999), Turkish actors Cahit Ölmez and Kadèr Gürbüz star as brother and sister Selatin and Mihriban Ates. In one episode, they are talking about something in Turkish. While Kadèr Gürbüz has a Turkish father, her mother is Flemish and therefore she cannot speak Turkish. Before the shooting of that particular scene, Cahit Ölmez had to teach her how to say each and every word of her lines. See more »
When "Flikken" first started in 1999, it was a very good show. But the second series were a lot worse, suddenly al the story lines were very unbelievable. But in the third series, it's getting better again! They introduced some new characters, and it's fun to watch again. But it's still not very realistic anymore. Next year, the fourth season will be shown, but it won't be the same again, with three major characters who are leaving (Axel Daeseleire, Cahit Ölmez and the always gorgeous Joke Devynck). On the other hand, the also always gorgeous Ann Ceurvels will be introduced, but still, they should stop the show now, while it's still popular, instead of keeping on going downhill.
