Annotation

In 1992, in peaceful Southern Sweden, Louise Akerblom, an estate agent, pillar of the Methodist church, wife and mother, disappears.

Publisher Description

In 1992, in peaceful Southern Sweden, a young housewife, pillar of the Methodist church, disappears and is found murdered, execution style, and Inspector Kurt Wallander and his team are called in to investigate. But the chain of events leading to the murder began far away in South African, where Nelson Mandela has made his long walk to freedom, beginning South Africa's painful journey towards the end of Apartheid. The team find themselves caught up in a complex web involving renegade members of the South African secret service and a ruthless ex-KGB agent, all determined to halt Nelson Mandela's rise to power. Faced with an increasingly globalised world in which international terrorism knows no national borders, Wallander and his South African colleagues must prevent a crime that would change the face of history.

Author Biography

Henning Mankell (1948-2015) became a worldwide phenomenon with his crime writing, gripping thrillers and atmospheric novels set in Africa. His prizewinning and critically acclaimed Inspector Wallander Mysteries continue to dominate bestseller lists all over the globe and 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. Driven by a desire to change the world and to fight against racism and nationalism, Mankell devoted much of his time to working with charities in Africa, including SOS Children's Villages and PLAN International, where he was 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

"Well paced... A thinking man's thriller" New York Times "The real test of thrillers of this kind is whether you want to spend more time in the detective's company. I certainly do" -- Sean French Independent "Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around, strong on characterisation, plotting and atmosphere. Highly recommended" -- Peter Gutteridge Observer "Superbly crafted detective stories" -- Christopher Gray Oxford Times 20031201
