Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bloody murder of a police captain in his hospital roomexposes the particularly unsavory history of aman who spent forty years practicing a horrible blend of strong-arm police work and sheer brutality.Nonetheless,Martin Beck and his colleagues scour Stockholm for the murderer, a demented and deadly rifleman. As the tension builds and a feeling of impending danger grips Beck, his investigation unearths evidence of police corruption. Thats when an even stronger sense of responsibility and something like shame urge him into taking a series of drastic steps, which lead to a shocking disaster.
