Publisher's Summary

When Viktor Palmgren, a powerful Swedish industrialist, is shot during his after-dinner speech in the luxurious Hotel Savoy, it sends a shiver down the spine of the international money markets and puts the tiny town of Malmö on edge. No one can identify the gunman when Martin Beck takes over the scene and finds a web so despicable that it's hard to imagine who wouldn't want Palmgren dead.

Critic Reviews

"Lively, stylistically taut...Sjöwall and Wahlöö have changed the genre." (Henning Mankell)

Unexpected

After all of the botched expectations, it was surprisingly the simplest explanation of humanity.

Was a nice break from some of life's greater complications

Blast from the past

Watched several Martin Beck DVD’s years ago and was surprised to see this on offer. The narration was excellent. We’re drawn into Swedish life nearly 50 years ago with hippie-dom, politics, racial and social issues. It’s always interesting to learn about crime and law enforcement in other countries.
