Het laatste woord

Het laatste woord in een discussie geeft je vaak een prettig gevoel: van winnen. Vervolgens ontstaat er een nieuw en naar gevoel: van verlies.

Pijnlijk, ondemocratisch, en staatsrechtelijk onjuist

I like several British and Scandinavian TV crime series. Recently, I started wondering if (their) crime fiction reflects reality? Based on my initial research, the answer seems clear: yes.
