Note: Book is NOT signed by Sjowall and Wahloo. The book is signed by Dorothy B Hughes to the first flyleaf. Hughes provided one of the quotes on the back of the dust jacket.

Near-fine first edition, with a slight bump to bottom of back cover and to top back corner. In a fine unclipped dust jacket with very slight loss of color to bottom edge of spine.


On a cold and rainy Stockholm night, nine bus riders are gunned down by an unknown assassin. The press, anxious for an explanation for the seemingly random crime, quickly dubs him a madman. But Martin Beck of the Homicide Squad suspects otherwise: this apparently motiveless killer has managed to target one of Beck’s best detectives – and he, surely, would not have been riding that lethal bus without a reason.

All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
