Tom Hollander plays expat Edward, whose niece, believed to be working as a sex worker in Amsterdam, is missing. Baptiste finds himself drawn into the case.
“This first series of Baptiste will allow us to discover more about Julien than ever before as he is parachuted into the centre of a shocking and wide-ranging crime story,” BBC drama controller Piers Wenger has previously said.
