Editorial Reviews

(In Swedish with English Subtitles) Hes got no style, no flash and hes middle-aged. But Swedish detective Martin Beck is good at one thing: methodically catching criminals so they can be put away for a long time. His tightly-wound partner, Gunvald, is the opposite: an impulsive man who cuts a dashing figure, is in no way politically-correct and who never met a boundary he didnt leap to cross. Hell do anything to get information from a suspect, including enhanced interrogation techniques. Its classic good cop/bad cop, and together with their team they bring down dangerous criminals lurking in the seedy Stockholm underworld. Beck may be a loner but hes not anti-social; he regularly sees his daughter, with whom he has a much better relationship than when he was neglecting her growing up. And at the end of a workday, theres always an interesting conversation and a nightcap with a neighbor who gives new meaning to the word quirky. Episode 10: The Man with No Face - A man is found stabbed to death. The mans widow claims a mysterious foreigner knocked on their door the day before the murder, but is that the real story? Beck and his team are on the case. Episode 11: The Cartel - A Greek restaurant owner is brutally tortured and killed. Beck and his team investigate, and are drawn into a world of smuggling, threats and violence. Episode 12: The Recluse - An Asian woman is found murdered in the waters of Stockholm's archipelago. Meanwhile a series of break-ins has occurred on an island outside of Stockholm, then a retired old man is discovered dead in his own yard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swagger December 5, 2012
Before there was the girl with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Joe Nesbo, Henning Mankell and all of the other excellent authors in the Scandinavian mystery invasion, there was the Martin Beck mystery series witten by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo published between 1965 and 1975. They are the Dashiel Hammett and Raymond Chandler of the Scandinavian school and their books stand up quite well against the best of Hammett and Chandler. This more modern television series captures the spirit of the books. While these are very tough minded mysteries, they offer more by way of humanistic values than we are used to seeing these days. Martin Beck, a middle aged policeman, is a bit neurotic - but his heart is good. The supporting character of the swaggering Gunvald Larsson, played by Mikael Persbrand, is one of the best characters in detective literature and television. Everything about this series is first rate and it is not to be missed by the lovers of Scandinavian noir or noir in general. As the characters in this series evolve, Gunvald and the other surrounding characters become more important and each is meticulously drawn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beck is back and better October 2, 2012
By Rickyb
Verified Purchase
In dvd set # 4 Beck is back with better filming and just as good if not better stories from Stickholm. Gruvald is tougher and has a new female accomplice. This takes the series from Set one at year 1997 to 2001. Beck is still being shown on Sweeden Tv til 2010. You just have to wait for MHZ to make the dupes and pay off the production companies. Can't wait for set #5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series June 24, 2014
See my reviews of Beck, episodes 13-15, 16-18. If you're looking for something different in the police procedural genre from the other side of the Atlantic, try Beck and Wallander. An excellent contribution to the discerning dvd library

This series just gets better as we get used to the cast. They are very well produced and acted. Beck would be up there with some of the best detective shows of all time.
