Criminal Students
10 May 2010 | by (Essex, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Student Eric Tomas breaks into the shop in which he works, he steals the petty cash from the till as well as a gun. Before leaving he sets off the alarm. Van Der Valk is called to 'The American Hotel' to investigate the death by shooting of Salesman Leo Hertog. It later comes out that Hertog is really Professor Koos Van Kemp who uses this alias while having affairs with his many students. As part of his investigation Van Der Valk visits Van Kemp's English wife to tell her of the murder, but she doesn't seem to be that bothered. He later interviews Dina about the case, while there he meets Eric Tomas. After seeing her he visits the shop where the murder weapon was stolen from, the jigsaw pieces of the case then seem to start fitting together, as he also meets Eric there. So the public prosecutor puts out a warrant for his arrest. Susan Van Kemp then visits Van Der Valk to confess to the murder of her husband, but it turns out that the killer was really her daughter Annebelle. A nice twist ending here. It's well written by Roger Marshall but it seems to be over too soon with a few holes that aren't resolved. It's also good to see future comedy stars Geoffrey Palmer and Karl Howman in early roles, as well as Christopher Timothy as an unnamed police officer.
