Henning Mankell

Synopsis of this title

Kurt Wallander fans will love this new novel from Henning Mankell. Featuring a new cast of characters this novel marks the end of the Kurt Wallander Mysteries and prepares the way for many more mysteries to come. Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, lives alone in a remote cottage in northern Sweden. Two things seem to consume him; his passion for the tango, and an obsession with the "demons" he believes to be pursuing him. Early one morning shots shatter Molin's window...by the time his body is found it is almost unrecognisable. Stefan Lindman is another off-the-job police officer. On extended sick leave due to having cancer of the tongue Lindman hears about the murder of his former colleague and, in a bid to take his mind off his own problems, decides to investigate. As his investigation becomes increasingly complex it is with both horror and disbelief that Lindman uncovers links to a global web of neo-Nazi activity.

Reviews of this title


"Absorbing, chilling and dripping with evil atmosphere." --The Times

"[Mankell] is an expert at writing about logical action and reactions. . . . Nothing can spoil the enjoyment of this superbly crafted mystery." --Orlando Sentinel

“Irrestible. . . . [Mankell] is a master at constructing gripping, intricately plotted police procedurals with a strong dose of social commentary. . . . The appeal . . . [is] the sheer brutal imaginativeness of the crimes.” --Business Week

"Delightfully morbid. . . . Steering between literature and suspense, [Mankell's] measured prose recalls those gloomy precisionists Peter Handke and Patricia Highsmith." --The Guardian

"The new cast are introduced with customary brilliance, and the political edge suggests a fine new direction from this immense talent." --Scotland on Sunday
