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 7: The Money Man - The double-life of a homosexual police officer leads to a showdown between Beck and his arch-enemy Gavling, a.k.a. The Money Man - a notorious kingpin in the underworld of Stockholm. (Directed by Harald Hamrell) Episode 8: Night Vision - A commuter on the last subway of the night is found decapitated. Beck uncovers a gang of young computer freaks who have transformed the entire underground into a hellish, real-life videogame where innocent people become targets. (Directed by Morten Arnfred) Episode 9: The Revenge - Two patrolling cops are killed after stumbling on to criminals who have just stolen large amounts of explosives. Martin Beck and his team must locate the suspects before it's too late. Meanwhile, Gunvald Larsson sets out on his own personal quest for revenge. (Directed by Kjell Sundvall)

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.

This series of murder mysteries is excellent. It draws the viewer into the story and keeps them on the edge of their seat! The dialogue is easy to follow even though it is in Swedish (with occasional english) and is subtitled in english.

The only downside is knowing that we are nearing the end of the series...

I have written at length already about my ideas as they relate to international mystery shows. For those of us in the U.S. accustomed to Law and Order and CSI, with maybe a little Masterpiece Mystery thrown in for good measure, it may or may not surprise that many other countries have a robust tradition of detective and cop shows. Italy, France, Finland... The list goes on and on. Many of these shows are wonderful.

Some of the very best of these come from Scandinavia. They include the omnipotent Wallander -- the mother of all mystery shows. But there are also less well-known series, like Beck. (I always have to laugh because evidently "Beck" is trademarked... I can't help but wonder how the internationally famous musician feels about that...).

At any rate, Martin Beck and his compadres in the Homicide Division have been solving murders on television since the late 90's (there have been about 30 episodes made since then). The shows are "movie" length -- 90 minutes, so you have plenty of time to get thoroughly engaged. The stories are based on books by Mai Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö that I have not read (but admit I should). Thanks to the invaluable MHz International Mystery (and also my local provider, Comcast), I have watched several episodes.

Beck (played wonderfully by Peter Haber) has a sidekick (of course he does!), Larsson (played by the smoldering Mikael Persbrandt), and where Beck is a pretty decent, well-intentioned chap (especially compared to some of his maladjusted counterparts in other Scandinavian series), his partner is a sort of Darth Vader to Beck's Luke. Larsson is the ultimate Bad Cop. He is bigoted. He's violent. He's snarky. He's funny and yet he's frightening. He does things cops shouldn't do.

Peter Haber and Mikael Persbrandt are outstanding, as is the rest of the cast. One of the best detective series I have seen on dvd.

This is a police story as good or better than classic American detective television. Good studies of the main characters.

These are well made series that don't go over the top with blood ,guts and violence but have enough action to keep the story moving until the end.

Each episode of the Martin Beck series is better than the previous one and that is not in any way demeaning the earlier episodes. They are just that good! You simply cannot get enough of them. Watching Martin and Lena is a story in itself, and Gunvald outdoes himself in each episode. Love them all -- even Wersén.
