Review

"A police procedural from the top drawer."--Colin Dexter, from the introduction"Superbly well done. . . . Stunning right up to the last paragraph."--New York Magazine"The first great series of police thrillers. . . . Truly exciting."--Michael Ondaatje"Sjöwall and Wahlöö, beside writers such as Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Georges Simenon, have shaped the genre and the reader's expectations as to what crime fiction should be."--Jo Nesbo
