"What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and compliated and human as the criminals." The Washington Post

Synopsis:

Maria van Buren, a beautiful, high-class prostitute is found dead with a knife in her back in her houseboat on an Amsterdam canal. Grijpstra and de Gier must solve the murder. Her tony clients all have sound alibis. Before the murderer is caught, the detectives and their commissaris will investigate allegations of black magic, travel to Curacao, and pursue their clues to a chilly island off the coast of Holland.
