Midsummer 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.

Love this author
I bought all of Mankell's books at the same time, I am on my fifth one. I love this series of books and really have enjoyed reading them one after the other. I bought them after watching the Wallander series starring Kenneth Branaugh, which I also loved. The books are a great read, I really enjoy the dialogue and the way they work to figure out the crime, not shoot 'em up but thoughtful deduction as to how the crimes took place and eventually who the perpetrator was. If you love mystery, you'll love these.

All Mankell books are great!
I read anything by Henning Mankell, and am never disappointed. They demand to be read!
