Masterpiece brings more original crime drama with Season 2 of Van der Valk

Steely-eyed cop Piet Van der Valk is dedicated to defending the people of Amsterdam, a city of bikes, boats, and - the way he sees it - bodies. Along with right-hand woman Lucienne Hassell, scruffy sergeant Brad de Vries, and brainy new guy Job Cloovers, Van der Valk investigates explosive battles between Amsterdam's establishment and alternative community, dysfunctional diamond tycoons at the heart of the city, and sexual exploitation in the highest levels of the classical music world.

Filming of Van der Valk is underway in the bustling, stunning city of Amsterdam. Watch Episode 1, Plague in Amsterdam, on September 25 at 8pm CST.

This beguiling murder mystery follows editor Susan Ryeland as she tries to unravel the meaning behind an unfinished manuscript of author Alan Conway's latest novel.
