Steven Mackintosh stars as Martin Beck, with Neil Pearson as Lennart Kollberg, in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of The Man on the Balcony. The Martin Beck books are widely acknowledged as some of the most influential detective novels ever written. Written by Swedish husband and wife team Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, the series set a gold standard for all subsequent Scandanavian crime fiction. Before Kurt Wallander or Harry Hole, Beck was the original flawed policeman, working alongside his colleagues to uncover the cruelty and injustice lurking beneath the surface of Sweden's seemingly liberal, democratic society. In The Man on the Balcony, adapted from the third book, someone is killing young girls in the parks of Stockholm. Beck has two witnesses: a mugger who won't say much and a three-year-old boy who can't say much. Can he solve the mystery before the killer strikes again? Translated by Alan Blair and dramatised by Katie Hims.

This music somehow suits this book: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWFYSjWJRfQThe problem with mysteries is that they are normally written in series, and one kinda has to start at the beginning..., not only because characters are introduced there, but because character development itself occurs more...

5.0 The Man on the Balcony
I read this not long after Unwanted. I didn’t realise that the themes were related until after I pulled it off the shelf and decided to read it. If I had I might have gone for something else – I can only stomach so much child killing in a month. Instead I read it over a weekend and “enjoyed” it. The...
