About the Author

Maj Sjoewall and Per Wahloeoe, both left-wing journalists and politically radical, met in 1961 while working for magazines published by the same company. They married the next year and together created the Martin Beck crime series, famously writing alternate chapters at night after putting their children to bed. Wahloeoe died at the age of 49 just as their 10th book was going to press. Sjoewall currently lives in Sweden and continues to work as a writer and translator. They won the esteemed Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Crime Fiction Book in 1971.

Reviews

`Superbly well done. It stars the gloomy head of homicide, Martin Beck, and is stunning right up to the last paragraph. The authors are ready for the great Simenon.' New York Magazine

`The tale proceeds at a fast clip, inventive and tantalizing as the pieces of the puzzle alternately fit together and fly apart..."The Fire Engine that Disappeared" is downright fascinating.' Publishers Weekly

'A gripping read, brilliantly plotted and with frequent moments of hilarity or tenderness.' The Guardian

Praise for Sjoewall and Wahloeoe:

`Plots are interesting as well as realistic, the various homicide men are admirably characterised, and the amused, sarcastic comments on modern Sweden are a delight.' Sunday Times

`The writing is elegant and surprisingly humorous - if you haven't come across Beck before, you're in for a treat.' Guardian

`One of the most authentic, gripping and profound collections of police procedurals ever accomplished.' Michael Connelly
