After his wife cheats on him with his superior, police commissioner Witse leaves Brussels for Halle to start a new life. His idiosyncratic character and ways of solving cases often clashes with his new colleagues.
Although the plot follows the typical crime, mystery and solution plot, Witse is much more than a crime drama. It is a peek at Flemish culture and it's a nice way to imporove your Dutch.
There are many hidden jokes and Easter eggs that hatch later on in every series.
