Meanwhile his daughter, Truus, bored with University takes up a job with disgraced former police office Thijs Orman at his Private Detective Agency and finds herself looking for yet another missing girl, this time it's her bosses own daughter. are they all linked?
At the Kroonstraat Police station the team Caes has put together look into the normal run of the mill cases and try to overcome the weather as much as the crime in the city as snow envelopes the streets of Utrecht.
We meet twins Freddie and Maaike Meijer who patrol the streets together with colleagues Adrie and Danny.
The team is made up by Madelon Verloet and man mountain Ernst Hougewood. Together they investigate car theft, street crime, assault and finally murder.
We look at the everyday lives of the police involved, Caes still traumatised after his wifes early death and Truus falling for Maaike.
