Van der Valk

Does anybody recall a TV series called "Van der Valk"?

First aired in 1972, "Van der Valk" was a British TV show about Amsterdam, Holland's top detective, Commisaris Piet Van der Valk. On this show, Van der Valk was known for his ability to break difficult cases by pursuing his famous hunches.

What's a shame nowadays is that we don't seem to have a real-life Piet Van der Valk. Otherwise, he would be able to answer the call for help from the Prime Minister of Aruba, which is a Dutch protectorate.

The call for help of which I am referring to involves the disappearance in Aruba of Natalee Holloway, an American tourist girl who has been missing for nearly a month now. She was last seen by her friends on the night before her return flight home.

So far, the Aruban authorities have not seemed to be making much progress with this case. Van der Valk could probably solve it in just one episode.

I remember Van der Valk very well indeed.

I believe they have effectively solved the case, but I don't believe finding the body (I believe she is dead) will be the end result.
