About this title

Synopsis:

[This is the MP3CD audiobook format.]

A quietly relentless thriller, The Man on the Balcony juxtaposes the most inhuman of crimes with the humanity of the men who must solve it--their perseverance, frustration, and horror--resulting in a police procedural that is as moving and credible as it is enthralling.

Someone is killing young girls in the once-peaceful parks of Stockholm--killing them after having his way. The people of Stockholm are tense and fearful. Police Superintendent Martin Beck has two witnesses: a cold-blooded mugger who won't say much and a three-year-old boy who can't say much. The dedicated work of the police force seems to be leading nowhere, and with each passing day, the likelihood of another murder grows. But then Beck remembers someone--or something he overheard . . . .

From the Back Cover:

"[Beck] had only seen the body for a few moments, and at a distance, and he didn't want to see it again if he could help it. This he knew to be an impossibility. The mental image of the child in the blue skirt and striped T-shirt was etched into his mind and would always remain there, together with all the others he could never get rid of.
