The Dutch Stereotype

 I caught an episode of the tv series "Van der Valk" (2020 remake) this evening. I remember watching the original series as a child (probably on a Friday night on the ABC). While it is a pretty standard "police procedural" there was one nod to the setting of the series. Towards the end of the episode, Van der Valk was and the new team member played a game of chess, with the new member winning. "We need someone who can think 4 moves ahead" was the closing comment.
