Publisher's Summary

A body is found at an ATM, the apparent victim a of heart attack. Then, two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime, showing no remorse whatsoever. Two open-and-shut cases. At first these two incidents seem to have nothing in common, but as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver, he begins to unravel a plot much more complicated than he initially suspected. The two cases become one and lead to a conspiracy that stretches far beyond the borders of Sweden.

Critic Reviews

"In the sixth Kurt Wallander book to appear in English, Mankell proves once again that spending time with a glum police inspector in chilly Sweden can be quite thrilling." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Well-paced...a thinking man's thriller." ( New York Times Book Review)

Good but not my favorite

I am a big fan of Henning Mankell. I liked this story but it was not my favorite of his. The story is a typical Mankell crime story with seeming disparate events that are tied up in the end. The cast of characters continue to be well developed but for some reason I felt like the story was less cohesive than some of his others have been. I will continue to listen to his stories though and would encourage others to give him a try if they haven't already.

Great story, poorly read.

The story is worth the price of admission, even with the poor performance of the reader. A middle aged detective at the peak of his career comes off more like a tired, 65 year old police officer with Dick Hill's narration.

Nevertheless, the plot is fast paced and the story is riveting.
