The Fire Engine That Disappeared


The Fire Engine That Disappeared (Brandbilen som försvann) is a mystery novel by Swedish writers Sjöwall and Wahlöö, published in 1969. It is the fifth book in the Martin Beck detective series. In the novel a house fire, which kills three people, was about to be written off as the result of a tenant's gas suicide when a forensics officer discovers a firebomb in the rubble that would have certainly killed the tenant had he not killed himself. Beck and his team launch a manhunt for the tenant's partner-in-crime, but are perplexed when the partner-in-crime is found dead at the bottom of the sea.
