A rather plodding procedural,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Martin Beck series (4) - The Laughing Policeman (Paperback)
The set up for this the fourth in the series should have made for a riveting read but having read the second and third in the series which were happening in real time and so were able to rack up the tension as the plot developed, this story rather like the first in the series is dealing with a single murder and so the whole essence of this story revolves slowly around solving the crime. So if you like a pure police procedural whereby the police work their way methodically through evidence till they get their man this is definitely for you.
