It was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Film Not in the English Language, and was the Dutch submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2007, but was not nominated.

At the time of release, it was the most expensive Dutch film ever made, and also the Netherlands' most commercially successful, with that country's highest box-office gross of 2006.

When the farmhouse where she had been hiding is accidentally destroyed in an Allied bombing, she goes to see a lawyer named Smaal, who has been helping her family.

He organizes for her to escape to the liberated southern part of the country.

Franken responds by planning to kill 40 hostages, including most of the plotters, but Müntze, who realises the war is lost and has been negotiating with the Resistance, cancels the order. On her evidence, he confronts Franken with a superior officer, Obergruppenführer Käutner, who orders Franken to open his safe, in a search for the valuables stolen from the Jews he had killed.

(Murdering Jews was not against SS regulations, but personally stealing their wealth was a capital offense.) However, the safe reveals nothing, and Franken tells Käutner that Müntze has been negotiating with Dutch resistance "terrorists" for a truce. The Resistance plots to rescue their imprisoned members; Ellis agrees to cooperate only on the condition that they also free Müntze.The plan is betrayed by an unknown insider, and the would-be rescuers find the prisoners' cells to be filled with German troops. Ellis is subsequently arrested and taken to Franken's office. Knowing that the Resistance is listening in, he stages a confrontation to make them believe that Ellis is the Nazi collaborator, responsible for the failure of the rescue operation.Kuipers and his companions swear to hunt her down and make her pay for her treason.Suspecting Smaal is the traitor, Müntze and Ellis return to confront him.Smaal states that the traitor has been revealed by the titular black book in which he had detailed all his dealings with Jews.Müntze chases him into the street, only to be recognized by the triumphant Dutch and arrested by soldiers from the Canadian Army.
