Summary
With a New Introduction by Arne Dahl When Viktor Palmgren, a powerful Swedish industrialist is shot during his after-dinner speech in the luxurious Hotel Savoy, it sends a shiver down the spine of the international money markets and puts the tiny town of Malmo on edge. However, no one in the restaurant, not even the victim before his death, was able to identify the gunman, and local police were sheepishly baffled. Beck takes over the scene and finds a web of vice so despicable that it's hard to imagine who "wouldn't "want Palmgren dead, but that doesn't stop him and his team of dedicated detectives from tackling one of their most intriguing cases yet
