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.
