Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

"In the same vein as the complex police procedurals of Ian Rankin comes these books featuring Detective Kurt Wallander. Set in Mankell's native Sweden, these dark and brooding mysteries have a European sensibility reminiscent of recent European crime thrillers like Insomnia and The Vanishing (the original European versions). Mankell is a best-selling author in Europe, and deserves the same success here in the States with his Black Lizard reissues." Georgie Lewis, Powells.com

Synopsis:

In a remote Swedish farmhouse, an elderly farmer has been bludgeoned to death, his wife left to die with a noose around her neck. Before the old woman dies, she utters the word foreign, which may be the only real clue the police have to go on. And they need to work fast. The press has reported the dying word, and white supremacists have threatened a nearby refugee camp, vowing to take justice into their own hands. Recently divorced, overweight, drinking too much and not sleeping enough, and maybe failing for the beautiful but married prosecutor Anette Brolin, Police Inspector Kurt Wallander doggedly leads the investigation into a crime for which there seems to be no reason, or certainly not one Wallander is sure he wants to know.
