This Dutch thriller follows protagonist Michael Bellicher who finds his life falling apart after a woman is found dead in the offices of the company he works for. At first the authorities believe it was suicide but Bellicher is less convinced; she had asked to meet shortly before her death. As he investigates he ends up being accused of her murder, loses his job, his marriage falters, his back accounts are locked and he uncovers a scheme where those involve can adjust people's internet records to make them appear guilty of just about anything. He manages to extricate himself by the end of the first series but his problems aren't over.

As the second season starts he finds himself accused of killing a young Polish girl in a hit-and-run accident in the town of Monster… he is perplexed as he hasn't been there and it involved a car he never owned. It turns out that somebody has stolen his ID and used it to by a car and property in Monster as well as clear out his bank account. As he struggles to clear his name and get to the bottom of what happened his life, and the lives of those close to him, are once again in danger.

I rather enjoyed this series; it may be more than a little far-fetched at times but it moves along at a cracking pace so one doesn't dwell on these unlikelihoods while watching. Daan Schuurmans does a fine job as Bellicher making us believe in this ordinary character caught up in extraordinary events and is ably supported by the rest of the cast. The action is tense throughout and while the viewer will guess that Bellicher will ultimately survive unharmed we can't say the same about other major characters. There are some shocking moments, some of which may be disturbing; most notably the grainy CCTV image which shows the moment a young child was struck by a car.

These comments are based on watching the series in Dutch with English subtitles.
