What to expect
It is Midsummer's Eve. Three young friends meet in a wood to act out an elaborate masque. But, unknown 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 it the same killer, and what could the connection be? In this investigation Wallander is always, tantalisingly, one step behind.

Listen to a sample
Not only an intriguing puzzle, but a moving description of a man trying to keep faith with a dead friend... This is the best aspect of crime fiction: a gripping plot plus the exploration of character and relationships that reverberate around murder
Mankell is in the first division of crime writing
So compelling that, at the end of the sleepless night it took to read, I blearily reached for a keyboard to search for Mankell's other titles
One of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended
