The first episode of the third series of Van der Valk starts off with an exciting pre credit car chase on the streets of Amsterdam. With all the Ford cars this could be an episode of The Sweeney.

Van der Valk runs over one of the masked robbers fleeing, it turns out to be a woman and she is dead.

Feeling remorse he attends her funeral and faces the dead woman's angry brother. Her husband is more sympathetic, after all she was a habitual robber who was involved in the death of a bank guard.

Now both Van Der Valk and his wife Arlette face increasing danger as they are stalked. Arlette has her car tyre slashed and her house plants are sprayed with acid.

The third series was completely filmed in Amsterdam. None of the indoor scenes were shot on a London studio on videotape as it happened in the first two series.

The story gets tense as the dangers the Van der Valks face gets deadlier. However the twist was rather obvious.
