Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"When two dead bodies show up in the Swedish town of Ystad, the aging and disheartened police detective Kurt Wallander begins to investigate the murders as the press attacks his reputation. 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, but other characters' voices are sometimes unconvincing. Hill uses the same tone and pitch for all characters, rendering men and women confusingly interchangeable. The liberal use of audible sighs, snorts and chortles pull listeners deep into the narrative, and Hill should also be commended for his smooth reading of Swedish names and places. A Vintage paperback. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A body is found at an ATM, the apparent victim of a heart attack. Then two teenage girls confess to the brutal murder of a cab driver. As Wallander investigates these two seemingly distinct and simple cases, they merge into a great conspiracy.
