        Along with Roseanna and The Man on the Balcony, Murder at the Savoy easily ranks in the top three out of the ten Martin Beck series. Logical, crisp plot. Great references to the political climate of the 60's. A real pleasure/5(3). "Murder at the Savoy" is a crime story and the sixth in the excellent Martin Beck series by the Swedish writing team of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo. The Savoy of the title is a swank hotel in the southern Swedish city of Malmo, a port city that sits close across the Baltic from Denmark/5().

        A new book by British barrister and former judge Andrew Rose unearths a little-known affair with a French courtesan 20 years before Edward’s abdication, which ended in a rigged trial at the Author: Belinda Goldsmith. Martin Beck, that persevering policeman but still the soul of gloom, investigates the shooting in a public hotel dining room of a very big businessman to whom no corner cut (even the eviction of a worker who had lost a job) was too petty to overlook. This is not the best in this excellent series &#; the quotidian realism is again there but the case itself is very thin.

        Murder at the Savoy is the sixth book and doesn't have the intensity of some of its predecessors in the series, but it's still a great read. As always, Wahloo and Sjowall take their opportunity to voice their opinions about the social problems in Sweden of the time. The sixth thrilling installment in the Martin Beck detective series from the s – the novels that have inspired all Scandinavian crime fiction. Widely recognised as the greatest masterpieces of crime fiction ever written, these are the original detective .
