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.

Trivia

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 »

Best of Belgium
29 November 2003 | by charmed_margauxSee all my reviews

I love love love this show! I'm a teenager, and it's one of the few flemish shows we can actually watch with our whole family and with everyone liking it... It's a shame to see so many good characters leave, but they always seem to find new interesting people. I only hope that rumor of Andrea Croonenberghs quitting the show isn't true, because she's really an enormous asset to the show. The duo Pasmans and Raymond are so funny, their really a comic act on their own, big applause to them too. Really, if you speak dutch, or have subtitles in other languages, you should watch the show, it's pure entertainment every sunday night.
