The final book in the classic Martin Beck detective series from the 1960s and 70s - the novels that shaped the future of Scandinavian crime writing.

Hugely acclaimed, the Martin Beck series were the original Scandinavian crime novels and have inspired the writings of Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbo.

An American senator is visiting Stockholm. A group of terrorists is determined to assassinate him. Detective Inspector Martin Beck is determined to stop them. At the same time, there is the ambiguous case of a young woman on trial, the latest in a long string of bank robberies plaguing the city, and the mysterious circumstances of a millionaire porn filmmaker found brutally murdered at his mistress' house. Will Beck be able to manage each unravelling case and prevent further atrocities, even when his own life is put on the line?

`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
