On a July afternoon, the body of a young woman is dredged from Sweden's beautiful Lake Vattern. 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 eighty-five people. With its authentically rendered settings and vividly realized characters, and its command over the intricately woven details of police detection, Roseanna is a masterpiece of suspense and sadness.

This is the first in a sequence of ten novels featuring Stockholm's First Detective Inspector Martin Beck. It is a crime novel that goes beyond police procedure to the implications of a society's criminal activity. The authors are a husband and wife team.Review:
'Sjowall and Wahloo used their excellent Martin Beck series, begun in 1965, to explore Swedish society as much as to construct distinctive police procedural page-turners.' (THE TIMES )
