When a pillar of the local community vanishes, Inspector Kurt Wallander has a feeling the victim will never be found alive, but he has no idea how far he will have to go in search of the killer...Winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award for Sidetracked.
Henning Mankell (1948-2015) became a worldwide phenomenon with his crime writing, gripping thrillers and atmospheric novels set in Africa. His prizewinning and critically acclaimed Inspector Wallander Mysteries continue to dominate bestseller lists all over the globe and his books have been translated into forty-five languages and made into numerous international film and television adaptations: most recently the BAFTA-award-winning BBC television series Wallander, starring Kenneth Branagh. Driven by a desire to change the world and to fight against racism and nationalism, Mankell devoted much of his time to working with charities in Africa, including SOS Children's Villages and PLAN International, where he was also director of the Teatro Avenida in Maputo. In 2008, the University of St Andrews conferred Henning Mankell with an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in recognition of his major contribution to literature and to the practical exercise of conscience. www.henningmankell.com
"Well paced... A thinking man's thriller" * New York Times * "The real test of thrillers of this kind is whether you want to spend more time in the detective's company. I certainly do" -- Sean French * Independent * "Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around, strong on characterisation, plotting and atmosphere. Highly recommended" -- Peter Gutteridge * Observer * "Superbly crafted detective stories" -- Christopher Gray * Oxford Times *
