LONDON — Dutch inmates will have the chance to help solve mystery murder cases as police distribute calendars featuring unsolved cases to prisons across the Netherlands.

The so-called cold-case calendars will feature a photograph of a murder victim or missing person, as well as details about the case, for each week of the year.

The Dutch police announced the project last week after a pilot program that rolled out in five prisons in January coincided with a large number of tip-offs.
