I have to admit that I didn't know of this Belgian series before I found it at a local shop here in the Netherlands. As I was curious and the cover and text on the packaging convinced me that this could in fact be an interesting series, I bought series 1. After watching a few episodes it was clear to me that the acting was on a very high level, the locations well picked and the stories and main storyline (through all episodes) were very convincing. The actress playing the main character Helena de Ridder (Clara Cleymans) is really very good and - not unimportant - real eye candy. I liked season 1 very much and even before I finished watching it, I found season 2 in my local shop. At this moment I've already watched that season. The quality remains on a very high level and makes me really want to see the third season. Unfortunately it will take a year or more before it will be on DVD as it still has to be produced. It's my favourite Belgian series so far. I can really recommend it to everyone that loves a well plotted crime series with good acting situated in the beautiful city of Ghent.
