Inspector van der Valk, created by Nicolas Freeling, works for the Amsterdam police and does not believe in playing it by the book. Come and join our book club and get to know him better. We will also be introducing you to a new Dutch detective, Henk van der Pol.
We launch the book club on 30 November 2016 with Freeling’s Double-Barrel, first published in 1964 (any edition; Amazon has a selection of second-hand copies), Discussion will be led by Jane Fenoulhet and Daniel Pembrey, creator of Van der Pol, whose book The Harbour Master will be published in November and will be our second discussion book on 11 January 2017.
