Overview

La noche de San Juan, alguien, agazapado tras un matorral, contempla cómo se divierten unos jóvenes... Por esas mismas fechas, ajeno al drama que se fragua, el inspector Kurt Wallander regresa de sus vacaciones, y en agosto, ya metido en la rutina, empieza a acusar un extraño agotamiento que está a punto de costarle la vida en un accidente de tráfico. Cuando acude al médico, se lleva un buen susto al saber el diagnóstico. Para colmo, Svedberg, uno de sus colegas, no aparece a su vuelta de las vacaciones, y una madre presiona a los agentes para que busquen a su hija: hace ya más de un mes, la joven se marchó de viaje con unos amigos de manera imprevista, y todo indica que las postales que han enviado son falsas. Svedberg, que sigue sin dar señales de vida, ¿no estaba investigando esas desapariciones? Wallander no puede ni imaginar las incógnitas que le presentará este caso... ni los sangrientos crímenes que deberá resolver, "y cuanto antes", como le pide el fiscal.

    Inspector Wallender is at the pinnacle of his career

    A small group of young adults are gathered to mark an event. They live out their ceremony as in a medieval play with appropriate costumes and open air setting. But a murderer stalks them and awaits his moment to act: he will execute each and every one of them. Inspector Wallender is able to get into the mind of the killer. He is thus successfull in stamping out the killing rampage, but not until after more people die and his own life is threatened. This novel is thoroughly enjoyable because its author, Henning Mankell, has developed an exquisite style, expressed a profound knowledge of human psychology, and delivered a believable set of characters.
