4 Sjowall, Maj; Wahloo, Per The Fire Engine That Disappeared (A Martin Beck Police Mystery #5)
New York Pantheon Books 1970 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket

"The cunning incendiary device that blew the roof off a Stockholm apartment house one cold winter night not only interrupted the small, peaceful orgy underway inside, it nearly took the lives of the building's 11 occupants. And if one of police commissioner Martin Beck's colleagues hadn't been on the scene, the explosion would have led to a major catastrophe since - for reasons nobody could satisfactorily explain - the fire department didn't arrive until too late. How could a regulation-sized ladder truck vanish in the center of Stockholm? What, if anything, did the explosion have to do with the peculiar death earlier that day of a 46-year-old bachelor whose cryptic suicide note consisted of only two words: 'Martin Beck'?"; 7" - 9" Tall
