About this title


The eagerly awaited second mystery from the award-winning Kurt Wallander series. Mankell's tenacious sleuth, Inspector Kurt Wallander, returns to investigate a horrific crime in his Scandinavian homeland that soon involves him with a troubled apartheid-era South Africa. When his search for the truth behind the execution-style killing of a Swedish housewife uncovers a plot to assassinate Nelson Mandela, Wallander finds himself in a tangle with the South African secret service and a ruthless ex-KGB agent. Combining heart-pounding suspense with probing social commentary, The White Lioness is certain to win new American readers for this master of the detective genre.

From the Inside Flap:

Third in the Kurt Wallander series.
The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case even though there is no obvious suspect. But then Wallander learns of a determined stalker, and soon enough, the cops catch up with him. But when his alibi turns out to be airtight, they realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex--and dangerous. The search for the truth behind the killing eventually uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with both the secret police and a ruthless foreign agent. Combining compelling insights into the sinister side of modern life with a riveting tale of international intrigue, The White Lioness keeps you on the knife-edge of suspense.
