Maj Sj÷wall (25 September 1935 ľ 29 April 2020) was a Swedish author and translator, best known for the collaborative work with her partner Per Wahl÷÷ on a series of ten novels about the exploits of Martin Beck, a police detective in Stockholm. They also wrote novels separately.

In 1971, the fourth of the Beck books, The Laughing Policeman (a translation of Den skrattande polisen, originally published in 1968) won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Novel and was adapted into the film The Laughing Policeman starring Walter Matthau. In 2013, Sj÷wall received the fifth Lenin Award[.

Sj÷wall had a 13-year relationship with Wahl÷÷ which lasted until his death in 1975.

Sj÷wall died on 29 April 2020 at the age of 84 after a prolonged illness.
