Episode 1

Dutch sleuth Van der Valk thinks suspect Martin is lying over his ex-lover's murder. David Troughton reads Nicholas Freeling's thriller. From March 2006.

The Dutch police arrive at Martin's house just as he's thinking of going to bed. He has to leave his wife Sophia and travel with them to Amsterdam's central police station, where Inspector Van der Valk breaks the news.

Martin is the chief suspect in the murder of the seductive Elsa de Charmoy - his former lover and manipulator of men...

Nicholas Freeling's crime thriller read by David Troughton.

Piet Van der Valk is the much-copied prototype detective, 'a cranky, gentle, bumbling, brilliant, non-conformist student of human behaviour whose primary concern is why rather than how crimes are committed'.

Abridged by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths.

Producer: Mary Ward-Lowery
