This is my first Henning Mankell read and I was extremely impressed. Set in current day Sweden, the book's story reaches back into World War II and Hitler. Richly drawn characters, compelling story and setting. I can't wait to start the author's Kurt Wallender series. Very highly recommend.

Herbert Molin, a retired police officer ,is living alone in a remote cottage in the vast forests of northern Sweden. He has two obsessions: one is the tango an the other is a conviction that he is being hunted. Molin has no close friends, no close neighbors and by teh time his body is eventually found,he is almost unrecognisable.

Lindman, a police officer on extended sick leave ,decides to involve himself in the case. What he discovers, to his horror and disbelief,is a network of evil almost unimaginable in this remote district, and one which seems impossible to link to Molin's death.

Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, lives alone in a remote cottage in northern Sweden. Murders and evil networks left over from the Second World War set this small community alight.
