4 out of 5 (1 rating)


It is Midsummer's Eve. Three young friends meet in a wood to act out an elaborate masque.

But, unknown to them, they are being watched. Each is killed by a single bullet. Soon afterwards, one of Inspector Wallander's colleagues is found murdered.

Is it the same killer, and what could the connection be?

In this investigation Wallander is always, tantalisingly, one step behind.

Review by

Although the crimes are of the usual unusual sort and really get the reader thinking,this is not up to Mankell's high standard. For a start the whole thing id much too protracted for my liking,going over the same ground again and again. When the killer id finally captured and interrogated,he has no explanation for his actions.The whole thing becomes a cop-out.
