Lucia! Look this way!



- Yes.

I'm Antoinette. I'm glad you're here.

Assistant prosecutor...

Feels good, doesn't it?

She's waiting for you.

It's a formality. She'll probably

give you a stern look, is all.

The first day's hard, isn't it?

It'll be over tomorrow.

Profiling and chain argumentation

With distinction.

Antoinette will show you the ropes and

you'll archive the Lindeman case this week.

Good. Fine.

I hoped to join a current investigation.

It's been very hectic here

and this file has to be organized.

There's sure to be a nice case

for you to prove yourself.

Hush, llttle baby

Don't say a word

Are you still here?

I gave Sanne in room 4 a new drip

and Ahmed in 7 has gone back to sleep.

It's sure to be a quiet night.

Shall I go?

- No need. You go on home.

No, just let me check.

Did you have any dinner?

No, I'll eat later, Grandma.

But you work so hard.

- I don't...

And anyway, I enjoy it.

You know that.

Lucia, I don't understand the papers.

- Oh, let me take a look.

They didn't give him more morphine?

- They said it wasn't necessary.

He's awake half the night.

I'll see what I can do, okay?


Will you take one more look?

Grandma, I no longer do that.

I don't even know where they are.

The Hanged Man

Take it easy, sweetheart. Take it easy.

It's no fun, is it?

But you'll feel better in a bit, you will.

Should I take him?

No, I'll keep him on my lap.

I hope he sleeps better in a minute.


Oh, Joosje, would you check

when he was last fed?

You think he's hungry?

- No. But just check it. Okay?

That's good, isn't it?

Page Doctor Kobes again!

Petra! Now! Now!

I already tried her twice.

They always do that...

when you're at a concert.

Unplug him...

and fit a new drip.



It's okay.




One, two, three, four. I'm losing him.

One, two, three, four...

One, two...

One, two...

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven...

Hold tight.

This keeps happening to me.

Yes... It's awful.

But it's as if...

it's as if I attract it, or...

That's impossible. Impossible, isn't it?

You know what?

Take some time off.

Get away for a few days.

But can I just do that?

- Of course, I insist.

It's so nice of you to come yourself.

It's the least I can do.

I'll inform HR.

You recharge your batteries at home.

We'll work out what happened.

Take care.

You're late.

Your grandma called.

She wants you to drop by.


Yes, and who reported it?

I don't get it. First it was natural causes

and later it wasn't?

Can you make copies?

What? You want to be a prosecutor, right?

- Antoinette. Detective Bos...

A report from Westland hospital.

- I'm on that arms case. I can't...

Then you can come.

Yes, we're at Westland hospital.

She always arrives early and stays late.

She's a little...

- Am I right?

Carry on.

- You mentioned the night shift.

It's just... sometimes

I have a strange feeling about her.


- And she acts weird.

Very concerned but also very, very cold.

She never sits with us.

Always on her own. As if she's too good...

And she keeps giving us orders.

As if she's a doctor.

Right. It's true.

And she was on the game.

- What?


- She told me once on night shift.

Does she still do that?

She always wears short skirts.

And that little bell.

Okay, we'll make an appointment

with each of you this week.

It's important that we know

about things like this.

Detective Bos.

- Mrs Johansson.

My assistant Judith Jansen.

This is detective Bos.

Mrs Jansen.

Here comes Dr Kobes.

- Hi, Barbara. How terrible this...

The baby had a heart op 6 weeks ago.

Then he was moved

from Intensive to Medium Care.

He seemed fine

but suddenly needed resuscitating.

Breathe through your mouth.

I sent offblood samples to establish

the cause of death.

It's not natural causes?

I don't get the blood digoxin.

- Digoxin?

It's a heart drug

that can be fatal for babies.

It wasn't natural causes?

No. But how? The child is flawless.

No needle marks or anything.

To be honest,

we had no idea who we employed.

No idea at all.

That's why I got in touch with Tesla

Hospital. Where she worked before.

They had the same stories as here.

She was independent, arrogant, private.

I got numbers from the previous hospital.

In geriatrics, she had 17 resuscitations

and deaths. If you add that to ours...

then it can't be coincidence,

statistically speaking.

The chance of this happening

to one specific nurse is 1 in 700 million!

It says "stable".

Noted by Dr Kobes

with De Berk beside her.

The child died soon after.

Were there witnesses?

Of other cases?


Two babies were cremated and the rest

were Muslim. You can't excavate them.

Was that coincidence?

Barbara, can you provide

clear summaries, please?

You mean ofbaby Timo?

- No. All of them, please.

All of them? But Jaap...

I don't know.

I don't know if there is a case.

- Nor do I.

Jaap, do me a favour and

keep it under wraps, okay?

Is he handsome?


Is he good-look?

- Muml

Does Dad know yet?

- No, you're the flrst.

Go to school. Let's talk tomorrow.

Love you.

- I love you, girl.



Hi, darling.

Are you okay?

I don't get it.

I just don't get it.

It must be a misunderstanding, dear.

So why did they suspend me?

The lawyer said so too.

They ain't allowed to without good reason.
