Van der Valk spoilers

The third and final episode of the new series (21 August) is titled Payback in Amsterdam.

A synopsis reveals: “When a classical musician and former musical child prodigy, Fleur Mas, is the victim of an acid attack and subsequently dies, Van Der Valk and his team must question if the intention of this attack was to maim and disfigure, or to kill? As the attack took place in the crowded concert hall foyer with numerous witnesses, was the attacker trying to send a message?

“The investigation takes an unexpectedly personal turn when Brad and Job interview the victim’s partner, Femke De Haan, the guest conductor, who also happens to be Lucienne’s ex. Rehearsing for their annual performance on the canal the orchestra is raising money for ‘No To Silence’, a charity that supports victims of sexual assault and encourages those affected to come forward.

“From Femke the team learn that Fleur reported she was being stalked shortly before her murder, but they are unable to find any record of Fleur having reported the alleged stalking. They are, however, able to discover that on the day of her attack, she met up with an investigative journalist and hacker.

“The investigation brings Van Der Valk and his team face to face with corruption and coercion at the highest levels of authority to discover an international sex trafficking network that has links all the way to the top. With royalty and politicians allegedly involved, how far do wealth and power protect those committing the most heinous of crimes?”

Van der Valk continues Sunday nights at 8PM on ITV.
