A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Amsterdam Vice

Premiering on MHz Choice on January 18 / Film & TV

You may remember the popular detective novels by A. C. Baantjer, which detail the adventures of Inspector Jurre de Cock, a fixture of Dutch literature. In this fast-paced and heady eight-part prequel series, we see the arrival of de Cock (Waldemar Torenstra) in Amsterdam, where he’s paired up with Tonnie Montijn (Tygo Gernandt), a native of the city. It’s the roaring 80s and the buddy-cop narrative plays out amid the cobblestones and alleyways of the red-light district. A must watch. —E.C.
