What’s New

Judas by Astrid Holleeder: Best known for masterminding the 1983 kidnapping of the CEO and Chairman of Heineken brewing company, Willem Holleeder is one of the most notorious criminals in contemporary history.

But his latest conviction is quickly becoming the trial of the century. Charged for his involvement in multiple assassinations, including that of his former partner and brother-in-law, Holleeder is finally being put on trial for murder, all due to the shocking testimony of his own family.

Having spent years as his unwilling consigliere, Holleeder’s own sister Astrid, is now breaking her silence and going on the record.
