Description

Midsummer approaches, and Wallander prepares for a holiday with the new woman in his life, hopeful that his wayward daughter and his ageing father will cope without him. But his summer is ruined when a girl commits suicide before his eyes, and a former minister of justice is butchered in the first of a series of apparently motiveless murders. Wallander's hunt for the girl's identity and his furious pursuit of a killer who scalps his victims will throw him and those he loves most into terrible danger. WINNER OF THE CRIME WRITERS' ASSOCIATION GOLD DAGGER.

Reviews

"Wallander's investigations are perfectly judged to create a thrilling mood of growing tension culminating in a satisfying climax" The Times "Wonderfully bleak thrillers...somehow unremitting and gripping at the same time" -- Sean French Independent "Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended" Observer "Sweden's answer to Morse and Wexford" Mail on Sunday "Gripping... Expert plotting" Daily Telegraph
