This popular fiction series follows the police officers in a precinct of Ghent (Flanders, Belgium), both professionally and in their private lives. Main characters include detectives like John Nauwelaerts and Raymond Jacobs, the gay Wilfried Pasmans who shakes his sissy image by moving from office - to field work, motorized cops such as Nick Debbaut and the ethnic Turks Selattin and Mihriban Ates. Other recurring characters include some of their relatives or partners, especially when those side-stories interact with their police work, as well as forensic and public prosecution officials.Written by
In the first series of Flikken (1999), Turkish actors Cahit Ölmez and Kadèr Gürbüz star as brother and sister Selatin and Mihriban Ates. In one episode, they are talking about something in Turkish. While Kadèr Gürbüz has a Turkish father, her mother is Flemish and therefore she cannot speak Turkish. Before the shooting of that particular scene, Cahit Ölmez had to teach her how to say each and every word of her lines. See more »
I think that the "Flikkken" series is something really excellent. The show has been running for 6 years, and with ever increasing audiences and appreciation.
Andrea has grown over the years in her role as police officer, and she is probably one of the best actresses around in Belgium.
Flikken is also popular in other countries. The series has more diverse plots then for instance "Baantjer". In "Baantjer", it is always the same: someone gets killed and they find the murderer in 40 minutes. This is boring!!!!
Andrea and colleagues: keep up the good work!
