Although it looks likes the scene was completely filmed in Amsterdam, a small part of it was shot in the city of Utrecht.
The Oudegracht is the most famous canal in Utrecht. With their many dock cellars, Utrecht’s canals are very different from those in Amsterdam. The Oudegracht is almost two kilometers long. These days, you will find countless pleasant restaurants and cafés with a water-side terrace in these dock cellars.
A mysterious diver hiding in Amsterdam's canal system embarks on a rampage of gruesome murders, terrifying city officials and leaving few clues for the city's best detective, who doesn't suspect that both his new girlfriend and twelve-year-old daughter may be closer than he is to finding the killer.
