The Laughing Policeman (Martin Beck Police Mystery #4)
One blustery November evening someone guns down nine occupants of a Stockholm bus, one of them a colleague of Martin Beck. It appeared to be a random killing, but Beck’s investigation would lead him to a different conclusion.
|This was a good short read. Having said that as it was written nearly 40 years ago was a bit dated. But that didn’t detract from the enjoyment of the read. After all people still enjoy Agatha Christie.
Martin Beck and his squad are to busy in fighting it is any wonder they manage to sove crimes. But they do. It was refreshing to read a book with no internet,Facebook, Twitter and mobile phones etc.
Old school but enjoyable.
