On a July afternoon, the body of a young woman is dredged from Sweden's beautiful Lake Vättern. Three months later, all that Police Inspector Martin Beck knows is that her name is Roseanna, that she came from Lincoln, Nebraska, and that she could have been strangled by any one of 85 people.
As the melancholic Beck narrows down the list of likely suspects, he is drawn increasingly to the enigma of the victim, a free-spirited traveler with a penchant for the casual sexual encounter, and to the psychopathology of a murderer with a distinctive - indeed, terrifying - sense of propriety.
With its authentically rendered settings, vividly realized characters, and command over the intricately interwoven details of police detection, Roseanna is a masterpiece of suspense and sadness.

Roseanna:a Martin Beck Mystery
It was a pleasure to go back to this series of books--the Martin Beck Mysteries--after so long a hiatus, but this time to listen to them. Though set in the sixties and early seventies, they are not dated at all, but instead have become classics. Nicely read so a pleasure to listen to. I don't what to say other than if you like good books in the mystery genre, than you will love these. I hope Apple will get them all.
