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

The scenes at Lowietje's café (each episode had at least one scene there) were all shot simultaneously. This took only a few days in total. See more »

Crazy Credits

Normally the footage for the title credits changed each season, being composed of footage from the new season's episodes. However, the 10th, 11th and 12th seasons had the same opening credits as the 9th, possibly because starting with the 9th season it became standard for episodes to be delayed one season (episodes shot for season 9 were aired as season 10 and so forth).

Great show!
17 January 2007 | by ann_dutchgirlSee all my reviews

Baantjer is a great show! (not crap at all) Every Friday night, here in the Netherlands, I watch it with my family and it's a very exciting show. The person who wrote the other review has probably never seen Baantjer because if he had, he wouldn't have called it crap! Also, it's not true that the only reason for watching Baantjer is because famous stars appear on screen every time because they never have famous people on Baantjer! Baantjer is just a great, funny and exciting Dutch show, that would never make it in the USA because it has too much Dutch culture. But that's not a reason for people to comment negatively on it! And If you ever go to the Netherlands, check it out! (You'll definitely fall in love with it!
