When Viktor Palmgren, a powerful industrialist, is shot during an after-dinner speech, the repercussions—both on the international money markets and on the residents of the small coastal town of Malmö—are widespread. Chief Inspector Martin Beck is called in to help catch a killer nobody, not even the victim, was able to identify. He begins a systemic search for the friends, enemies, business associates and call girls who may have wanted Palmgren dead. But in the process, he finds to his dismay that he has nothing but contempt for the victim and sympathy for the murderer.

This is the sixth thrilling installment in the Martin Beck detective series from the 1960s, the novels that have inspired all crime fiction written ever since.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The large and varied cast is nicely captured by Tom Weiner’s able and often wonderfully witty performance. Especially when he creates dialogue between two characters with utterly different pitches and timbres, you’ll be tempted to laugh with pleasure. One cares less about who actually ‘dunit’ than about the characters, which makes audio the perfect way to enjoy this book.”


  • “Lean, sardonic, and insightful…Murder at the Savoy is well up to the standards of this excellent series, and praise does not come much higher than that.”

    " Martin goes to Malmo to investigate a "political" killing. Classic. "

    " This installment in the Martin Beck series was slow going. All the action bookends a social commentary on Sweden in the 1960s, and I had a hard time investing in any of it. "

    " A bit of a political statement in this one - but the police procedural portion is outstanding. (Though I really did struggle with some of the ideology portrayed - or maybe I just did not understand what they were trying to express.) "

    " It was good to see that nothing changed in the workings of Stockholm. For once the obscene took place without much in the telling. "
