Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a July afternoon, the body of a young woman is dredged from Sweden's beautiful Lake Vattern. Three months later, all that Police Inspector Martin Beck knows is that her name is Roseanna, that she came from Lincoln, Nebraska, and that she could have been strangled by any one of eighty-five people. With its authentically rendered settings and vividly realized characters, and its command over the intricately woven details of police detection, Roseanna is a masterpiece of suspense and sadness.

Review:

Here, newly reissued, are two classic crime stories: the first featuring the American private investigator Nero Wolfe in the 1930s, the second introducing the Swedish police detective Martin Beck in the 1960s.
