About the Author:

The novelist Nicolas Freeling, who has died aged 76, was best known for his Van der Valk detective stories and the two television series they inspired.

He was the most thoroughly European of British crime writers. In addition to the Amsterdam detective Piet Van der Valk, whom he rashly killed off in 1972, he created a series of novels based on the more reflective provincial French Inspector Henri Castang. He also wrote exceptional, often underrated, single novels, again set in Europe. He published 37 works of fiction in all, and four miscellaneous works.

Review:

Freeling can only be compared to Simenon at his very best --New York Times

One of the most gifted and original writers of crime fiction --The Weekly Standard
