White nights: A truck driver is killed in a sting operation. The dead man turns out to be Beck's long-lost son, whose existence was a well-kept secret from colleagues and family. After his initial shock, Beck returns to the investigation with renewed passion. This time it's personal." -- Container.
The man with the icons: An elderly woman is found murdered. The prime suspect is her husband, a quiet and deeply-religious man who collects Russian icons. His grief appears genuine, yet his story doesn't exactly check out.
"The decoy boy: After the bodies of two immigrant boys are discovered, a group called The Swedish Front claims responsibility. A lead brings Beck and his team to a website where young boys are sold for sex, but time is running out.
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.

A GREAT Swedish police procedural based upon the characters created by the writing team Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö in the 1960's. I read the original books then and never forgot them. I was delighted to find this series. Unfortunately you have to get the DVD's through MNLink, as Hennepin County has missed the boat. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Explosions come to Sweden. Lots and Lots and Lots of explosions in Beck. They probably think that if it works for American films it will work for Swedish ones. They are wrong (although the explosions are well done).
