SQL Join Question

Hi,
I have a table1:

/id/case_id/description/
1/101/My Test
2/102/Test 2

in table 2
/id2/case_id/state
1/101/2
2/101/1
3/101/2

I want now, from table 1 and 2 together
case_id/description/<last state/highest id of case_id from table 2>
like
case_id/description/id2/state
101/My Test/3/2

How to make the join for the result? And finally for all case_ids from table 1?

Maybe something like this:

SELECT table1.case_id, table1.description, table2.id2, table2.state
FROM table1
	INNER JOIN table2 ON table1.case_id = table2.case_id
	INNER JOIN (SELECT case_id, MAX(id2) maxID FROM table2) data
		ON table2.case_id = data.case_id AND table2.id2 = data.maxID
