The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case, except that there is no obvious suspect. Wallander follows a lead on a determined stalker, but when his alibi turns out to be airtight, Wallander begins to realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex and dangerous. Eventually, his search uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with the secret police and with a ruthless foreign agent.

A riveting tale of international intrigue with compelling insights into the sinister side of modern life, The White Lioness keeps you on the knife edge of suspense.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This exciting novel is both a meticulous police procedural and a tense, believable political thriller…Hill is an award-winning narrator, and it’s easy to see why. He keeps the pace moving briskly and finds voices for the characters that help define their personalities.”

    Kliatt

  • “Dick Hill translates Mankell’s minimalist narrative style without flashiness and generates tension at the same time, an impressive feat. Hill seamlessly switches viewpoints and accents among Swedish, Russian, and South African characters with absolute believability.”

    " This is my third Mankell in about 6 weeks. I'm just under the spell of Kurt Wallander. I'm probably gonna begin "Sidetracked" tonight. I'm like an addict. I have to skip one in the chronology because it's not available (I've put a hold on it at the library) but since they are not published in order in French it doesn't really matter but I like really in chronological order. One of my "bizarre" habit "

    " This book was excellant. It was quite a long one but totally worth readng. It starts out with the killing of a woman and just goes haywire from there, all tied to the planned assassination of Nelson Mandela. Wow, what a story! I love how Mankell takes real world events and makes them into such a great work of fiction. Read this!! "

    " Better than the first two. It's a little frustrating because Wallander's behavior is not normal (and would normally get him in trouble) and the key clues he needs are, well, serendipitous. But the story is good, the pacing is very good, and the story as a whole fits together well for a novel that splits its time between Sweden and South Africa. "

    " It's another great book in the series by Mankell. There were a couple stumbles where the plot was propped up by flimsy events. But the whole was good so I quickly forgave these slight blips. "
