Albert Cornelis Baantjer (September 16, 1923 – August 29, 2010), often called Appie Baantjer, A.C. Baantjer or simply Baantjer, was a Dutch policeman turned novelist.

He is mainly known for his large series of detective novels revolving around police inspector De Cock and his side-kick, sergeant Vledder. The name of the protagonist simply means "cook" in Dutch, but has an unusual spelling which is at the heart of a running gag that involves De Cock spelling out his name every time he introduces himself to someone.
