Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo, wife and husband team, wrote ten Martin Beck mysteries, virtually creating the modern police procedural. In addition to the many short stories and novels he wrote, Mr. Wahloo, who died in 1975, wrote numerous radio and television plays and was a reporter for several Swedish newspapers and magazines. Maj Sjowall is also a journalist and poet. She lives in Sweden.
"So many of the elements that have become integral . . . in the police procedural started life in these ten novels. . . . Their plots are second to none."—Val McDermid “Magically successful, a series of crime novels you shouldn't miss.”—Minneapolis Tribune“It's hard to think of any other thriller writers (apart from Simenon perhaps) who can capture so much of a society in a couple of hundred pages and yet still hold true to the thriller form.”—Sean and Nicci French“One of the most authentic, gripping and profound collection of police procedurals ever accomplished.”—Michael Connelly
