A Kurt Wallander Mystery
The final instalment in the bestselling Wallander series from the godfather of Swedish crime
Every morning Håkan von Enke takes a walk in the forest near his apartment in Stockholm. Then, one day he fails to come home.
Detective Kurt Wallander is not officially involved but Håkan's son is engaged to his daughter Linda. A few months earlier Håkan was eager to talk to Kurt about a controversial incident from his past. Could this be connected to his disappearance?
When Håkan's wife also goes missing, Wallander is determined to uncover the truth but the investigation will force him to look back over his own past, as he comes to the unsettling realisation that even those we love the most can remain strangers to us...
“A heartbreaking tale of descent into despair and darkness that serves as a totem for what great crime writing can achieve”
Declan Burke, Irish Times
“By the time you get to the end, you'll be wanting another. But it would be hard to beat this tale of murder and loss which leads back to the heart of the cold war”
“A plot as twisted and exciting as any Le Carre thriller”
“It's a fine finale for the fretful policeman and it's hard not to feel you'll miss the old bugger”
Siobhan Murphy, Metro
