The Laughing Policeman (Skrattande Polisen) (Martin Beck, Bk 4)
The Laughing Policeman - Skrattande Polisen - Martin Beck, Bk 4 Author:Maj Sjowall, Per Wahloo, Alan Blair (Translator) The fantastic fourth classic installment in the Martin Beck detective series from the 1960s -- the novels that have inspired all crime fiction written ever since. On a cold and rainy Stockholm night, nine bus riders are gunned down by an unknown assassin. The press, anxious for an explanation for the seemingly random crime, quickly dubs hi... more »m a madman. But Martin Beck of the Homicide Squad suspects otherwise: this apparently motiveless killer has managed to target one of Beck's best detectives -- and he, surely, would not have been riding that lethal bus without a reason. With its wonderfully observed lawmen, its brilliantly rendered felons and their murky Stockholm underworld, and its deftly engineered plot, 'The Laughing Policeman' has long been recognized as a classic of the police procedural.
