About this Item

First American edition, first printing. Text and binding like new. Cover show a bit of shelf wear. Inspector Kurt Wallander and his team at the Ystad police station in Skåne, southern Sweden, receive an anonymous tip-off that comes to pass a few days later: a life raft is washed up on a beach. In it are two men, dressed in expensive suits, shot dead. The dead men were Eastern European criminals, victims of what seems to have been a gangland hit. But as the case soon takes on a sinister turn, Wallander finds himself in Riga, Latvia. There he is plunged into a frozen, alien world of police surveillance, scarcely veiled threats and lies. Only his dogged, almost subconscious desire to see justice done brings the truth to light. Bookseller Inventory # 000165

About this title

Synopsis:

When a life raft carrying the bodies of two Eastern European criminals washes up on the Swedish coastline, Inspector Kurt Wallender travels to Riga, Latvia, where he struggles against corruption and deceit and risks his own life to uncover the truth.

From the Inside Flap:

Second in the Kurt Wallander series.

On the Swedish coastline, two bodies, victims of grisly torture and cold execution, are discovered in a life raft. With no witnesses, no motives, and no crime scene, Detective Kurt Wallander is frustrated and uncertain he has the ability to solve a case as mysterious as it is heinous. But after the victims are traced to the Baltic state of Latvia, a country gripped by the upheaval of Soviet disintegration, Major Liepa of the Riga police takes over the investigation. Thinking his work done, Wallander slips into routine once more, until suddenly, he is called to Riga and plunged into an alien world where shadows are everywhere, everything is watched, and old regimes will do anything to stay alive.
