Publisher's Summary

Four nuns and a fifth woman, a visitor to Africa, are killed in a savage nighttime attack. Months later in Sweden, the news of the unexplained tragedy sets off a cruel vengeance for these killings.
Inspector Kurt Wallander is home from an idyllic holiday in Rome, full of energy and plans for the future. Autumn settles in, and Wallander prays the winter will be peaceful. But when he investigates the disappearance of an elderly birdwatcher, he discovers a gruesome and meticulously planned murder - a body impaled in a trap of sharpened bamboo poles.
Then another man is reported missing. And once again Wallander's life is on hold as he and his team work tirelessly to find a link between the series of vicious murders. Making progress through dogged police work and forever battling to make sense of the violence of modern Sweden, Wallander leads a massive investigation to find a killer whose crimes are the product of new realities that make him despair.

*SO SO*

It was ok. Though drawn out with Kurt's depressive nature. The novel could have been shorter giving more impact to the mystery.

Sean Barrett was great, as always.

True to Mankell form

Upon reflection I realised its been over two years since my last Wallender making this book all the sweeter, absence really does make the heart fonder. The combination of Mankells' driving narrative from the lips of Sean Barrett had me transfixed. I'd forgotten just how much depth both men are capable of infusing into seemingly banal situations. Only trouble is how addictive the experience is. Got a feeling I'll be revisiting past pleasures to get my fix..... Highly recommended (just make sure you save some for me)
