The Man on the Roof

In Stockholm, Commissioner Nyman is murdered in his hospital room. Inspector Beck and his colleague, Rönn, lead the investigation. Little by little, they uncover the brutal methods employed by the murdered police officer and come to suspect that the guilty party must be one of their own. But who could have resented him to such an extent?
Police officer Stig Nyman is murdered by an unseen assailant brandishing a bayonet. His colleagues Beck, Rönn and Kollberg pick up the case, keen to find the perpetrator of the attack. Their investigation leads the team to discover that Nyman was a lousy cop with a history of brutality. As their search intensifies, they are caught unaware by a rooftop assassin with a sniper rifle, picking off every cop he can... The Man on the Roof was adapted from the novel by celebrated writers Sjöwall and Wahlöö, whose Martin Beck character has been realised in multiple films and recent TV series Beck. Influenced by The French Connection's gritty vérité style, celebrated director Bo Widerberg created an incredible spectacle here that would become legendary in Sweden and remains a foundational work of Scandi noir.
