Before The Frost, Paperback / softback Book

Before The Frost Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The leader of a religious cult in Guyana instigates a mass suicide.

He succeeds in killing himself and his whole flock of worshippers, save one.

In a wood outside Ystad, the police make an horrific discovery: a severed head, and hands locked together in an attitude of prayer.

A Bible lies at the victim's side, handwritten corrections and amendments on every page.

A string of incidents, including attacks on domestic animals, has been taking place and Inspector Wallander fears that these events could be the prelude to attacks on humans on a much greater scale.

Meanwhile Linda Wallander, preparing to join the Ystad police force, arrives at the station.

Showing all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper - she becomes involved in the case and in the process is forced to confront a group of extremists bent on punishing the world's sinners.
