Good. Mankell shifts the narrative of his mystery series from Kurt Wallander to Kurt's daughter Linda without losing the charm of the main series.

"Mankell is a master of the traditional arts of the crime novel, narrative pacing and suspense." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Mankell is a master storyteller." SF Chronicle.

Translated from Swedish - the Kurt Wallander mysteries consistently top the bestseller lists in Europe.

In this latest atmospheric thriller, Kurt Wallander and his daughter Linda join forces to search for a religious fanatic on a murder spree. Just graduated from the police academy, Linda Wallander returns to Skane to join the police force, and she already shows all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper. Before she even starts work she becomes embroiled in the case of her childhood friend Anna, who has inexplicably disappeared. As the case her father is working on dovetails with her own, something far more dangerous than either could have imagined begins to emerge. They soon find themselves forced to confront a group of extremists bent on punishing the world's sinners.
