Praise

“The first great series of police thrillers. . . . Truly exciting.”—Michael Ondaatje
 
“The [Martin Beck] series has maintained such a degree of excellence that comparisons are near impossible.”–Minneapolis Tribune
 
“It’s hard to think of any other thriller writers (apart from Simenon perhaps) who can capture so much of a society in a couple of hundred pages and yet still hold true to the  thriller form.”—Sean and Nicci French
 
“Sjöwall and Wahlöö write unsparingly and unswervingly. . . . Their plots are second to none.”—Val McDermid

“Sjöwall and Wahlöö continue to be tops for discriminating crime book readers.”—Denver Post
 
“Ingenious. . . . Their mysteries don’t just read well; they reread even better. . . . The writing is lean, with mournful undertones.”—The New York Times
 
”Martin Beck is as always very believable: this, we feel, is what it must mean to be an honest and intelligent policeman in modern Sweden, or anywhere else.”—Times Literary Supplement
 
“In the hands of Wahlöö and Sjöwal . . . the police story – with no loss of suspense or action – [has been] brilliantly fashioned into a sharp instrument for social commentary.”—Washington Post
 
“Edge-of-the-seat suspense.”—San Francisco Examiner
