Description


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.

Praise for Henning Mankell

“An arresting writer . . . [Mankell] understands and probes the underside of everyday living in an elegant and artful way. . . . The result is writing that walks a line between ephemeral and everlasting.”
     —The Washington Post
 
“[Mankell’s] Swedish detective, Inspector Kurt Wallander, is one of the most impressive creations in crime fiction today. . . . An old-fashioned moral force and sense of disquiet of the sort rarely found in contemporary crime fiction.”
     —The Guardian
