When Viktor Palmgren, a powerful industrialist, is shot during an after-dinner speech, the repercussions-- both on the international money markets and on the residents of the small coastal town of Malmö-- are widespread. Chief Inspector Martin Beck is called in to help catch a killer nobody, not even the victim, was able to identify. He begins a systemic search for the friends, enemies, business associates, and call girls who may have wanted Palmgren dead. But in the process, he finds to his dismay that he has nothing but contempt for the victim and sympathy for the murderer.

The narrator is quite funny, accent and all but the funniest thing is the way the novel is written (with dripping sarcasm and irony). The outcome of the investigation isn't what we are looking forward to here. I was rather looking forward to the next exchange between Martin Beck and his supervisor.

If you like Henning Mankell novels and the like, this serie is its predecessor.
