One of the best of the Beck series,
This review is from: The Martin Beck series (5) - The Fire Engine That Disappeared (Paperback)
Alongside the first book Roseanna, and The Man on the Balcony, this is among the best of the Martin Beck decalogue.
The story is quite wide-ranging in geography and plot, with interesting procedural details. And all the regulars are present, including Melander and the bear-like Gunvald Larsson, plus the inept Kristiansson and Kvant for slight comic relief. A new recruit, Benny Skacke is introduced. Recommended.
