Know your enemy.


Kidnapping Freddy Heineken
Also known as Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, this is the story of a famous kidnapping. Set in 1983, when a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century by kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire. The shocking capture, by gunpoint in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam, resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. It was truly the perfect crime... until they got away with it.
