The Terrorists is a crime novel by Swedish writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. The Terrorists was unfinished at the time of Per Wahlöö's death in June 1975; the story opens with a trial where an eighteen-year-old woman is accused of a bank robbery she never intended to commit. A pornographic film producer is found murdered at the home of his mistress; the main plot of the book involves Martin Beck leading a team of policemen to prevent a presumed terrorist attack on a unpopular American senator, paying an official visit to Sweden. The attack is led by terrorist Reinhard Heydt, born by a Danish mother in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, part of the international terrorist organization Ulag which has carried out several exceedingly brutal attacks successfully. Beck is appointed head of the protection unit for the state visit and to plan the distance protection with four colleagues, they assume that the attack on a place will be that the convoy must pass, perpetrated in the same pattern as in a previous assassination of Ulag in a Latin American country.
The four terrorists of Ulag manage to place the bomb. However, they are deceived by a delayed television coverage when triggering the ignition and Einar Ronn, one of four commissioners to Beck manages to clear the square shortly before the explosion; the situation seems to be under control, but shortly afterwards there is a shot, but the victim is not the US Senator, but the Swedish Prime Minister. The perpetrator is a alienated young woman, known from another storyline earlier in the novel Two of the four terrorists are taken by surprise and arrested by the police in their hiding place; the third, Levallois has fled. The police seals off all roads across national borders; as the fourth terrorist Heydt encounters the police, there is an exchange of fire in which Heydtis killed and a policeman injured. The story, indeed the series, ends with the policemen able to go home to spend Christmas with their families, with the book ending with Beck partnered with Rhea, his girlfriend, enjoying New Year festivities with Kollberg and Gun, Kollberg's wife.
Lennart Kollberg plays only a minor role in this book. His absence is compensated by a more important role for Gunvald Larsson. In this last Sjöwall and Wahlöö book, Martin Beck admits to himself that he likes working with Larsson, although he misses Kollberg. Theobald Braxén, a defense attorney, is introduced as a rather comical and sympathetic character who loves taking up hopeless cases, his antagonist in court is Sten "Bulldozer" Olsson, first introduced in The Locked Room. In 1994 the novel was adapted for film under the title Stockholm Marathon, with its plot much altered. In the film, the intended victim is a man running the Stockholm Marathon and the motive is revenge; the film was directed by Peter Keglevic and Gösta Ekman played the role as Martin Beck.

The Abominable Man
The Abominable Man is a 1971 police procedural novel by Swedish writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. It is the seventh book in their series about Martin Beck; the plot follows Martin Beck and his colleagues trying to solve a murder on a senior policeman, known for his brutality against others. While the investigation is ongoing, a well armed man climbs up on a roof in Stockholm. One of Donald Knuth's favourite novels, he described it as "one of Sjöwall and Wahlöö's brilliantly Swedish detective novels". A senior policeman known for brutality is violently knifed while in his hospital bed. Within a 24-hour period, Martin Beck investigates the policeman's many enemies in an attempt to identify the killer, for whom the murder was only a precursor to a Charles Whitman-style attack on Stockholm. Since they cannot find a starting clue, the police go in the archives of the police ombudsman where they find many old complaints about Nyman, they encounter the entry of their former colleague Åke Eriksson. On the roof of a skyscraper in downtown Stockholm, it comes to a showdown with Eriksson, who has lost everything, at which point the novel ends with Martin Beck injured by a gunshot.
Martin Beck and his now grown-up daughter Ingrid develop their friendship. Police officer Kurt Kvant is killed in this book by the crazed killer on the roof; the book was directed by Bo Widerberg. It was renamed The Man on the Roof, stars Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt, Sven Wollter, Thomas Hellberg and Håkan Serner, it was awarded with two Guldbagge Awards
