Inhaltsangabe: The fourth in the Martin Beck series. One blustery November evening someone guns down eight occupants of a Stockholm bus - one of whom was a colleague of Martin Beck's. Eight people together purely by coincidence - perhaps. But, above all, why was that policeman - a solitary and ambitious man - on that bus?
?I?ve read ?The Laughing Policeman? six or eight times. Each time I reach the final twist on the final page, I shiver afresh.? Jonathan Franzen
?Tantalizing?the splendid story of an apparently motiveless crime.? New York Times Book Review
?An influential police procedural with a precision-engineered plot that can grip and shock a reader?the plotting, pacing and characterisation are all exquisite: and the halting translation and the dated, just plain weird sexual politics somehow seem only to make it more compelling.? Independent on Sunday
?For Beck, as with Maigret, each investigation is less a riddle to be answered than a human situation to be understood?it's all done with immense accomplishment. A welcome addition to the Martin Beck casebook.? Matthew Coady, Guardian
?They changed the genre. Whoever is writing crime fiction after these novels is inspired by them in one way or another.? Henning Mankell
?If you haven?t read Sjöwall/Wahlöö, start now.? Sunday Telegraph
?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
