Description
Inspector Martin Beck's family vacation is cut short in this second mystery in the Edgar Award–winning series, after a phone call sets him jetting off to Budapest. A Swedish journalist on assignment there has vanished without a trace—undoubtedly the result of a conspiracy, warns his editor—but the Hungarian authorities have little interest in pursuing the matter. Soon Beck is drawn into an Eastern European underworld in search of a man no one admits to having seen, and uncovers a web of crime that may entangle him as well. Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö are "the godparents of Scandinavian crime fiction," according to Jo Nesbø, while Henning Mankell acknowledged their Martin Beck novels as "one of the series that most inspired me.... Whoever is writing crime fiction after these novels is inspired by them in one way or another." Written from the mid-1960s to the mid-70s, the Martin Beck mysteries have been adapted into numerous film, television, and radio dramas.
