    DescriptionIt is Midsummer's Eve. Three young friends meet in a wood to act out an elaborate masque. But, unkown to them, they are being watched. Each is killed by a single bullet. Soon afterwards, one of Inspector Wallander's colleagues is found murdered. Is this the same killer, and what could the connection be? In this investigation, Wallander is always, tantalisingly, one step behind.

    Author Information
    Henning Mankell has become a worldwide phenomenon with his crime writing, gripping thrillers and atmospheric novels set in Africa. His prizewinning and critically acclaimed Inspector Wallander Mysteries are currently dominating bestseller lists all over the globe. His books have been translated into forty-five languages and made into numerous international film and television adaptations: most recently the BAFTA-award-winning BBC television series Wallander, starring Kenneth Branagh. Mankell devotes much of his free time to working with Aids charities in Africa, where he is also director of the Teatro Avenida in Maputo. In 2008, the University of St Andrews conferred Henning Mankell with an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in recognition of his major contribution to literature and to the practical exercise of conscience. www.henningmankell.co.uk.
    Review quote
    "Mankell is in the first division of crime writing" The Times "Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended" Daily Telegraph "The real test of thrillers of this kind is whether you want to spend time in the detective's company...I certainly do." -- Sean French Irish Times "Perfectly judged to create a thrilling mood of growing tension culminating in a satisfying climax" The Times "By far the best writer of police mysteries today" -- Michael Ondaatje
