IT SEEMED LIKE A GREAT TIMEseemed like a great time pick up a Swedish mystery novel seemed like a great time to pick up a Swedish mystery novel figured I could put on a comfy sweater and sip some coffee while eading about the Stockholm police tracking criminals across a gloomy winter landscape that matched the view out my window Unfortunately the book is set during the summer and the main character spends most of his time in hot and humid Hungary So I got very confused and ended up putting on my shorts and going out on the deck with a cooler of cold beer The doctor managed to save four of my toesPolice detective Martin Beck joins his family on their summer holiday but gets called back to work before he even has time to get a sunburn A journalist named Alf Matsson has vanished while on an assignment in Budapest and with the newspaper he worked for threatening to cause a political fuss the Swedish government wants Beck to find him Beck journeys to Hungary and since the book was written in the mid 60s this is behind the old Iron Curtain and Beck has no official status as he tries to locate MatssonThanks to growing up in Cold War era America I was expecting a book involving a Western European cop going into the Eastern Bloc to get political and involve Beck investigating in a harsh socialist state while dealing with a hostile Hungarian police force However the Budapest of this book seems like an idyllic vacation spot and the police are polite and fairly helpful to Beck It was a nice surprise that this was of cop out of his element story Filosofía e inmanencia rather than a mystery with politicalconspiracy overtonesThis series gets a lot of credit for being among the first police procedurals and it s easy to see the influence they had on the genre Val McDermid has a great introduction in this edition that talks about how groundbreaking the books were at the time and how many of the elements introduced in them went on to become clich s Unfortunately this copycatting has familiarized me with the style enough to enable me to guess the solution to the mystery about half way through the bookHowever I also liked the way that so much of what Beck is feeling and thinking is explained via his actions and not exposition or dialogue There are several hints that his marriage isn t going so well and you get the feeling that he welcomes the chance to get away from a family vacation but it s never expressed plainly The way we only know Beck through the way approaches his police workeminds me a lot of the early Matt Scudder novels by Lawrence Block I think I m starting to understand Martin Beck nowIf Roseanna was a very good first book that I had some problems with then The Man Who Went Up In Smoke is a very good second book that tackles some of those issues and The Monacan Indian Nation of Virginia: The Drums of Life really gives you a feel for the protagonist Martin BeckThis time Martin isecalled from his family vacation and despatched to Budapest at the euest of a government department who fears that a Swedish journalist has disappeared behind The Iron Curtain but far from being a cold war mystery ala Le Carre this is a study of a man out of his comfort zone interracting with foreign culture and dedicating himself to his professionBeck is a singular detective evolved from the brilliant Simenon creation Maigret with a dash of the hardboiled Marlowes and Spad My third Martin Beck police procedural although some lists consider this the second in the series This is a standalone story so the order of eading is not that important Although the emotional intensity is dialed.
