Sjöwall-Wahlöö, Cop Killer
Cop Killer is the ninth book in Sjöwall-Wahlöö's Martin Beck Police Mystery series.
A woman disappears in southern Sweden. Since her neighbor was implicated in one of Martin Beck’s previous investigations (that surrounding the American girl Roseanna in the first book in the Martin Beck series), Beck is asked to take over the case. The disappeared woman is found dead, and additional clues point towards the same murderer as in the Roseanna case.
Shortly after a police patrol is engaged in a shooting with two young criminals. One of the criminals dies, but his accomplice manages to get away after fatally injuring two police officers.
As the hunt for the police murderer intensifies, Beck starts wondering if the Roseanna case has led him on the wrong track.
