Has anyone read these?  I am getting a bit caught up in the Scandinavian mystery craze and I keep coming across Per Wahloo, especially.  I just roamed around B & N with the first two Martin Beck mysteries in my hand but I put them down because...well...I really need more new books, ya know?  Anyhow, if you've read these (written in the 60s and 70s), tell me what you think!

Nope.  Haven't tried them.  But as usual when I read a post of yours, my TBR list grows!

Heh.  You have the same affect on me!

I've read the first couple and have the next one or two here. They are older and a little dated, and that, plus the translation makes the writing style seem a bit "stiff" but that aside, they were good stories and I liked them enough to want to carry on reading them.
