(starring Peter Haber)
He’s got no style, he’s got no flash and he’s squarely in middle age. But Swedish detective Martin Beck is good at one thing: methodically catching criminals so that they can be put away… for a long time. His tightly-wound partner, Gunvald, is his opposite: an impulsive man who cuts a dashing figure, is in no way politically correct and who never met a boundary he didn t leap across. He’ll do anything to get information from a suspect, including enhanced interrogation techniques. It’s classic good cop/bad cop, and together with their team they bring down dangerous criminals lurking in the seedy Stockholm underworld. Beck’s a loner but he’s not anti-social; he regularly sees his daughter, with whom he now has a much better relationship than when he was neglecting her growing up. And at the end of a workday, there’s always an interesting conversation and a nightcap with a neighbor who gives new meaning to the word quirky.
