Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Excellent portrayal of police life
17 May 2017 | by paul42873See all my reviews

I watched the entire series and was captivated all the way through. The stories are good, and the character development throughout the series excellent. You felt that you really got to know the individual characters . I'm sure many viewers at the time when the series were aired thoroughly enjoyed them. Well done, I'm sorry there were only 10 seasons of this.
