* Similarly, in ''[[Literature/MartinBeck The Laughing Policeman]]'' shoots up a bus and kills nine people -- all eight passengers and the driver. One of the victims was a detective investigating an old murder (nearing the statute of limitations), and police assume he was the intended target because of that case. They are only half right: [[spoiler:The primary target was the suspect in the old case, acquitted on insufficient evidence. The one who killed this time was the one who hired him back then.]] The murderer later said that he told the victim to take the bus at this precise time, so that there'd be a few other passengers to throw the police off.[[note]]Ironically, he was a respectable businessman who first organized murdering his ex-lover, then covered the tracks all to protect the well-being of his family.[[/note]] In addition, the old case being re-investigated is full of false leads, and the detectives find the murderer in the old case files only after the confession.
