The fourth in the Martin Beck series. One blustery November evening someone guns down eight occupants of a Stockholm bus - one of whom was a colleague of Martin Beck's. Eight people together purely by coincidence - perhaps. But, above all, why was that policeman - a solitary and ambitious man - on that bus?
