After nearly thirty years in the same job, Inspector Kurt Wallander is tired, restless, and itching to make a change. He is taken with a certain old farmhouse, perfectly situated in a quiet countryside with a charming, overgrown garden. There he finds the skeletal hand of a corpse in a shallow grave. Wallander’s investigation takes him deep into the history of the house and the land, until finally the shocking truth about a long-buried secret is brought to light. INCLUDES AN AFTERWORD BY THE AUTHOR Review Praise for the Kurt Wallander series: • "No crime writer balances genre conventions with personal concerns as well as Mankell." The Boston Globe • "Mankell is that unusual thing: a European thriller writer whose work holds up as literature." The New York Times • "The Wallander series [is] essential reading for all crime-fiction fans." Booklist • "Mankell's lugubrious Swedish detective, Inspector Kurt Wallander, is one of the most impressive creations in crime fiction today.... Like a Baltic Inspector Morse, [Wallander] cogitates gloomily on the increase in cases of child abuse, drug smuggling and racial violence.... An old-fashioned moral force and sense of disquiet of the sort rarely found in contemporary crime fiction." The Guardian About the Author HENNING MANKELL's novels have been translated into 40 languages and have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. He is the first winner of the Ripper Award (the new European prize for crime fiction) and has also received the Glass Key and Golden Dagger awards. His Kurt Wallander mysteries were adapted into a PBS television series starring Kenneth Branagh. Mankell divides his time between Sweden and Mozambique.
