    DescriptionMidsummer approaches, and Inspector Kurt Wallander prepares for a holiday with the new woman in his life, hopeful that his wayward daughter and his ageing father will cope without him. But his restful summer plans are thrown into disarray when a teenage girl commits suicide before his eyes, and a former minister of justice is butchered in the first of a series of apparently motiveless murders. Wallander's desperate hunt for the girl's identity and his furious pursuit of a killer who scalps his victims will throw him and those he loves most into mortal danger. This title is the winner of the Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger.

    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.
    Review quote
    "Wallander's investigations are perfectly judged to create a thrilling mood of growing tension culminating in a satisfying climax" The Times "Wonderfully bleak thrillers...somehow unremitting and gripping at the same time" -- Sean French Independent "Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended" Observer "Sweden's answer to Morse and Wexford" Mail on Sunday "Gripping... Expert plotting" Daily Telegraph
