He served as a member of the Amsterdam Special Constabulary and was once a Zen Buddhist monk. He is renowned for his detective fiction, including Outsider in Amsterdam, Death of a Hawker, The Japanese Corpse, The Maine Massacre, which garnered him the Grand Prix de Littï¿½rature Policiï¿½re, and ten other books in the Amsterdam Cops series.
Praise for The Corpse on the Dike "A crisp, cheery follow-up to Tumbleweed." --Kirkus Reviews Praise for Janwillem van de Wetering "Mr. Van de Wetering's policemen are just as likely to . . . marvel at human nature as to shoot it down." --The New York Times "[A] unique atmospheric mix of police procedure, quirky characters, and Zen outlook." --The Boston Globe "[Van de Wetering] is doing what Simenon might have done if Albert Camus had sublet his skull." --John Leonard "What makes this series so engaging is that the policemen are as quirky and complicated as the criminals." --The Washington Post
