Storyline

In this Dutch police detective series, Detective Jurriaan 'Jurre' de Cock is sort of the 'Columbo' of a Dutch police city's police department, as deceptively poor in appearance (cheap raincoat) but always able to outsmart the crooks, usually a murderer per episode. He does however have a competent team, especially his young, promising right-hand Detective Dick Vledder and the more modest, often separately standard-researching Detective Albert 'Appie' Keizer, while Chief Corneel Buitendam is not too helpful; another regular is forensic examiner Dr. Ennaeus den Koninghe.

Trivia

In the Netherlands, the series (both reruns and new episodes) is always aired by RTL4 on Friday evenings, not counting airings on Belgian channels which are also received in the Netherlands. However, when live soccer matches threatened the viewing figures for some Baantjer reruns (which are known to usually score about as high as new episode, which is relatively unique), the series was temporarily moved to Tuesday evenings. Also, since late 2005, channel RTL7 also airs reruns of episodes on Saturday evenings (these are reruns of the episodes aired the Friday before; RTL7 is known for rerunning RTL4's programs the day after).

Crazy Credits

Since the 10th season the closing credits start playing over the final scene; the screen shrinks so the title bar showing the credits can become visible. See more »

Late discovery but now I've watched the episodes over and over
27 February 2019 | by comolucasSee all my reviews

So...for those who trash this little gem, you certainly don't speak for the majority. Love the 2 lead characters and their relationship, very natural bantering back and forth with respect from the younger to the older. The episode about the jazz big band was cool, man - a lot due to the characterizations of jazz participants being exactly the same as in the US. And that the talent it takes to play jazz can lead its owner astray just to keep the cool coming. Plus...well, every episode I watch - bete it this one or others on MHZ I pick up so much cultural information. One of my favorite non-verbal scenes is that of de Cock walking into police headquarters where he has to make way for two roller skating patrol officers and the look on his face when doing so. Also enlightening is the the laissez-faire attitude of the Dutch towards prostitution. It services are taxed, their government is probably well financed :)
