RARA-AVIS: A Sjowall/Wahloo Martin Beck question

From: thebradstevens ( bradstevens22@hotmail.com)

Does anyone know the correct order of the first three Martin Beck novels by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo? I know that ROSEANNA was the first one, but about half the sites I just did a search on claim that THE MAN WHO WENT UP IN SMOKE was number 2 and THE MAN ON THE BALCONY number 3, whereas the other half maintain that THE MAN ON THE BALCONY was written before THE MAN WHO WENT UP IN SMOKE.

I have the UK Sphere paperback editions from the early 70s. On the front cover of THE MAN ON THE BALCONY, the words "No. 2 in the brilliant Martin Beck series" appear under the title. Yet the copyright page contains a 1969 copyright date, whereas the Sphere edition of THE MAN WHO WENT UP IN SMOKE lists a 1966 copyright date.
