Amongst the top ten
A seemingly unfathomable mystery is gradually solved by painstaking police work with contributions from a team of individuals with very different personalities who bring their own slant on life into the equation. The portrayal of life in Sweden in the 1960's is also interesting in its perceptions.
The variety of accents and intonations help depict the different characters.
I have enjoyed several Martin Beck books as they have clarity and excellent character depictions.
