This review is from: The Fire Engine That Disappeared (The Martin Beck series, Book 5): 9 (Paperback)
I enjoy the continuity of the base story thread running in the background of each of the Beck books and feel the characters are like old colleagues or acquaintances. It's amusing to read about the quirks of each character and their foibles and how they all work together to solve the crimes. These books are easy reading but gripping, and having a fair amount of knowledge of the geography of Sweden helps me to imagine the places the detectives find themselves. I enjoy Scandinavian crime novels and these are a fabulous new find for me. It's a pity that Per Wahloo is no longer alive to continue the stories with Maj Sjowall. I will read the rest of the series with relish, and I know I will mourn when I have finished them all.
