About the Author

Per Wahloeoe was born in Goeteborg, the son of Waldemar and Karin (Svensson) Wahloeoe. After graduating from the University of Lund in 1946, he worked as a journalist, covering criminal and social issues for a number of newspapers and magazines. In the 1950s Wahloeoe was engaged in radical political causes, activities that resulted in his deportation from Franco's Spain in 1957. After returning to Sweden, he wrote a number of television and radio plays, and was managing editor of several magazines, before becoming a full-time writer.
Maj Sjowall is a poet. She lives in Sweden.


Praise for `Roseanna':

`The writing is elegant and surprisingly humorous - if you haven't come across Beck before, you're in for a treat.' Guardian

`I have never read a finer police story.' Los Angeles Times

`The decalogue about the Swedish Chief Inspector Martin Beck created by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo during the 1960s and 1970s are indeed classic police fiction. They changed the genre. Whoever is writing crime fiction after these novels inspired by them in one way or another.' Henning Mankell

`If you haven't read Sjowall/Wahloo, start now.' Sunday Telegraph

`Their mysteries don't just read well; they reread even better. Witness, wife, petty cop or crook - they're all real characters even if they get just a few sentences. The plots hold, because they're ingenious but never inhuman.' New York Times
