"A tale rich in gritty local culture. . . . The plot is satisfyingly seamy, Wallander is, as always, discombobulated and astute." -Los Angeles Times "Apart from his uncommon skill at devising dense, mulilayered plots, Mankell's forte is matching mood to setting and subject." -The New York Times Book Review "The writing is spare, the characterization deft, the atmosphere strong and the suspense overwhelming." -Times Literary Supplement "A gripping, thoughtful police procedural that engages from the first page." -Irish Independent
