About the Author

Maj Sjowall is a poet. She lives in Sweden.


'I have never read a finer police story.' Los Angeles Times

'If you haven't read Sjowall/Wahloo, start now.' Sunday Telegraph

'Their mysteries don't just read well; they reread even better. Witness, wife, petty cop or crook - they're all real characters even if they get just a few sentences. The plots hold, because they're ingenious but never inhuman.' New York Times

'They changed the genre. Whoever is writing crime fiction after these novels is inspired by them in one way or another.' Henning Mankell

'Pick up one book...and you become unhinged. You want to block out a week of your life, lie to your boss, and stay in bed, gorging on one after another.' Observer

'The godparents of Scandinavian crime fiction' Jo Nesbo

'Some of the most gripping crime fiction ever written' Michael Connelly

'If you haven't come across Beck before, you're in for a treat.' Guardian
