Description

The #1 international-bestselling tale of greed, violence, and corporate power from the master of Scandinavian noir. After killing a man in the line of duty, Inspector Kurt Wallander finds himself deep in a personal and professional crisis; during more than a year of sick leave, he turns to drink and vice to quiet his lingering demons. Once he pulls himself together, he vows to quit the Ystad police force for good-just before a friend who had asked Wallander to look into the death of his father winds up dead himself, shot three times. Far from leaving police work behind, Wallander instead must investigate a formidable suspect: a powerful business tycoon at the helm of a multinational company engaged in extralegal activities. Ann-Britt Höglund, the department's first female detective, proves to be Wallander's best ally as he tries to pierce the smiling façade of the suspicious mogul. But just as he comes close to uncovering the truth, Wallander finds his own life being threatened. In this thriller, Henning Mankell's mastery of the modern police procedural-which has earned him legions of fans worldwide and inspired the BBC show Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh-is on vivid display.
