Alluring, unstable, and frantically self-absorbed, Elsa de Charmoy was a dangerous woman, and now she’s a dead one, shot with a gun bought by her former lover. Sulking in an Amsterdam jail, he swears it’s been years since he saw Elsa, but Inspector Van der Valk isn’t quite ready to be persuaded. Like Inspector Maigret (to whom he is often compared), Van der Valk tends to pick apart the details, ideally over a good meal. And while Van der Valk’s ruminations may frustrate his more action-minded colleagues, they inevitably yield a surprising resolution.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The pace, the investigatory technique, the relationship that builds up between investigator and suspect—all are here…[as] Van der Valk, the detective, stalks him both physically and mentally. Suspense builds through the taut web of present danger and remembered past, until the real murderer, trailing all the tags of the dea ex machina, is trapped in an overactive finale.” Kirkus Reviews
“The most outstanding police detective in European fiction since Maigret.” New York Times, praise for the series
