In A Rose from Mr Reinhart it is Van der Valk’s own family that spark the case. Arlette is out in the park with her two boys, they regularly see a woman, Karen Seger, who is friendly and sometimes gives them sweets. On this day they the boys see Karen being followed by a man who is carrying a knife.

When Van der Valk pays her a visit she brushes him off but later that evening she calls the police station trying to contact him, Stribos, who takes the call, tells her it is too late to contact Van der Valk. Next morning a none too impressed Piet pays a visit to Karen’s apartment to find it ransacked and she is nowhere to be seen. Her body is later find in a car pulled from a canal.

1970’s TV regular Ingrid Hafner pops up in this episode as a Detective Inspector working the case with Van der Valk.

When speaking to Van der Valk Karen had claimed to be working as interpreter but on old University reveals she studied art and was terrible at languages. Segar is supposed to have worked for prominent businessman Martin Noordhoff and while Van der Valk is convinced she did work for him, it was not as an interpreter but as a call girl. It soon becomes obvious that the killer may be Noordhoff’s most important clients but it’s not as cut and dried as Van der Valk initially thinks.

An excellent cast includes James Cossins as the very dodgy Noordhoff (complete with even dodgier wig), the lovely Ingrid Hafner as a detective helping on the case and the excellent Denis Lill as Noordhoff’s right hand man.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
