Ben Booysen

After a 40-year career in the SAPS, Captain Ben Booysen achieved overnight fame as the ‘good hero’ cop in the TV hit series Devilsdorp when he finally managed to pin down and arrest the infamous Krugersdorp Killers. A cop driven by justice, it took Booysen three years of relentless sleuthing to get Cecilia Steyn and her crew behind bars. His book On the Devil’s Trail (also available in Afrikaans), written in collaboration with Sunday Times journo Nicki Gules, recounts this case.
