Storyline

A psychiatric patient, Reginald Aitken, who has been hospitalised for the last 18 years manages to escape from hospital. The same night a 17 year old girl, Sadie Carr (Commander Blake's god daughter), goes missing from a night club. Reginald is discovered holding the girl's body and covered in his blood. Reginald is thought to be the killer as his fingerprints were found on the murder weapon, however, the body of an earlier victim is uncovered, and it is proven that she was killed when he was locked up in the hospital. DCI Bridges gets the unsolicited help from a rather rude DI from Amsterdam, Van Hauten, who had similar cases in Amsterdam. Written by Branny

Good crime drama, good acting
10 July 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The story was fun and exciting for a crime drama! I am not going to give away the plot because that is the point of movies like this one. I have to mention Yorrick van Wageningen who plays a dutch cop assisting in this case for certain reasons. He is part of the reason this story stays exciting providing humor and charm. Amanda Burton (the commander),the main character doesn't do much in this story. But the chemistry between Yorrick and her was great. The other actors make their part believable. There is a hint of graphic violence to make your skin crawl. This movie provides enough to get you entertained but could have been better if the psychological aspects were deepened more. This series shows good promise and can become a great one if they pay more attention at the psychological themes.
