R.I.P. Maj Sjowall
« on: April 30, 2020, 11:43:17 pm »
Just saw this shared by the amazing Janet Rudolph: https://mysteryreadersinc.blogspot.com/2020/04/maj-sjowall-rip.html?fbclid=IwAR3RVZg11A5nlPGjqOMxjhZWbTc8kp6yBddveiJkOgvCcVUpCf4ksJ9zt2Y

When I was in high school, you couldn't go in a bookstore without seeing books by Sjowall and Wahloo - the husband and wife team of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo. I know I read a lot of their books back then, but I didn't hang on to them.

I think their most famous story was THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN (1968)

If these are still in print, I might be interested in rereading some of them. But I'll probably wait until I can get them from the library.
