    It is Midsummer's Eve. Three young friends meet in a wood to act out an elaborate masque. But, unknown to them, they are being watched. Each is killed by a single bullet. Soon afterwards, one of Inspector Wallander's colleagues is found murdered. Is this the same killer, and what could the connection be? In this investigation, Wallander is always, tantalisingly, one step behind.

    Par for the course

    As expected for this series. A little too contrived at the ending, with conveniently no phone or gun when the crises hits, but this doesn't hurt the s..Show More »

    Every morning Håkan von Enke takes a walk in the forest near his apartment in Stockholm. However, one winter’s day he fails to come home. It seems that he has vanished without trace. Detective Kurt Wallander is not officially involved in the investigation but he has personal reasons for his interest in the case, as Håkan’s son is engaged to his daughter.... The return of Kurt Wallander, for his final case, confirms Henning Mankell’s position as the king of crime writing.

    Should have quit while he was ahead

    Too long with so many missed opportunities to make this story great. For die hard Wallander fans only. An exhausting listen for anyone else.
