    DescriptionA series of seemingly unconnected murders In Africa, four nuns and an unidentified fifth woman are brutally murdered--the death of the nameless woman covered up by the local police. A year later in Sweden, Inspector Kurt Wallander is baffled when a retired car dealer is found impaled and the body of a missing florist is discovered strangled. With only a skull, a diary, and a photo of three men as clues, Wallander will need all of his strength to uncover the reason behind these deaths and their elusive connection to the unsolved murder of the fifth woman.
