About the Author

Maj Sj wall and Per Wahl , her husband and coauthor, wrote ten Martin Beck mysteries. They plotted and researched each book together then wrote alternate chapters. The books were written over a ten year period and carefully planned to allow for gradual character development and evolving social commentary as the series continued. Mr Wahloo, who died in 1975, was a reporter for several Swedish newspapers and magazines and wrote numerous radio and television plays, film scripts, short stories, and novels. Maj Sj wall is also a poet.


"The first great series of police thrillers. . . . Truly exciting."--Michael Ondaatje"Hauntingly effective storytelling."--The New York Times Book Review"Sj wall and Wahl write unsparingly and unswervingly. . . . Their plots are second to none."--Val McDermid"It's hard to think of any other thriller writers (apart from Simenon perhaps) who can capture so much of a society in a couple of hundred pages and yet still hold true to the thriller form."--Sean and Nicci French
