Henning Mankell

Fourth within the Kurt Wallander series.

In the award-winning Sidetracked, Kurt Wallander is named to a close-by rapeseed box the place a teenage woman has been loitering all day lengthy. He arrives simply in time to observe her douse herself in fuel and set herself aflame. the next day to come he's known as to a seashore the place Sweden’s former Minister of Justice has been axed to dying and scalped. The homicide has the most obvious markings of a demented serial killer, and Wallander is frantic to discover him ahead of he moves back. yet his research is beset with a handful of obstacles—a division distracted by way of the specter of coming near near cutbacks and the frivolity of global Cup football, a tenuous long-distance dating with a murdered policeman’s widow, and the unshakably haunting preoccupation with the younger lady who set herself on fireplace. attention-grabbing and astute, Sidetracked is a compelling secret improved by way of prepared social expertise.
