Spain seems to be holding onto it's unofficial title of the Costa del Crime, but Amsterdam is still creeping up on it.
The tracking down of Merseyside gangster Kirk Bradley is the 49th arrest in the search for 65 Most Wanted fugitives who've featured in the regular Crimestoppers campaigns.
That's a pretty good hit rate, with Sky News viewers and Sun readers contributing the info that lead to some of those captures.
A league table of the 49 arrests shows that 28 were caught in Spain, nine in Amsterdam, seven in the UK and Ireland, two in the Canary Islands and one each in the Balearics, Crete and Belgium.
Arno Julsing, chief of detectives for the Amsterdam police, said: "Our approach works and we have found that the number of fugitives hiding in Amsterdam is decreasing. Our message 'Amsterdam is not the place to be' has apparently been heard. "
I'm not sure he's right. I think that, its lack of sunshine apart, Amsterdam will continue to be an attractive hiding place for some very obvious reasons.
