A body is found at an ATM, the apparent victim of heart attack. Then two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime, showing no remorse whatsoever. Two open-and-shut cases.

At first, these incidents seem to have nothing in common. But as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver, he begins to unravel a plot much more complicated than he initially suspected. The two cases become one and lead to a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the borders of Sweden.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Well-paced…a thinking man's thriller.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Satisfying…[Mankell’s] Sweden—cold, isolated and brimming with disappointment—is as intriguing a landscape as Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles or Charles Willeford’s Miami.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Wonderful! Police procedural with personal texture.”

    Associated Press

  • “Mankell proves once again that spending time with a glum police inspector in chilly Sweden can be quite thrilling…Mankell’s ambitious endeavor to combine large themes with small-town murder is a notable success.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Mankell delivers a solid mystery with excellent buildup and dynamic characters, and Dick Hill’s delivery keeps the tension taut through the story. Hill’s gruff voice perfectly brings the downtrodden Wallander to life…Hill should also be commended for his smooth reading of Swedish names and places.”

    Publishers Weekly audio review

  • “Resolute Wallander, lonely, unhappy, even at times desperate, is as magnetic as ever.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

    " I visited a Swedish store in Door County, WI and decided that I needed to buy a book by a Swedish author. I was pleasantly surprised and am hooked. There is a series of books about Kurt Wallander a small town police detective. I didn't think that this would be my genre. I have recommended it to 6 friends and all have loved the book. I have bought the whole series. Fun, fun reading for me. "

    " As with Lee Child and Donna Leon, I have read everything that has been translated by Henning Mankell. He is the most popular writer in Sweden. "

    " This author grows on you. He's good! He's not as slow and plodding as Lecarre, but, he's good! "

    " This is a great Wallander mystery. I first "saw" it on PBS Mystery! with Kenneth Brannagh (highly recommended) but of course the full story is much more complicated. "
