Publisher Description

From the dean of Scandinavian noir, Henning Mankell, the internationally bestselling and universally acclaimed Kurt Wallander series, an incredible stand-alone masterpiece: a bone-chilling mystery that spans two centuries and four continents.
 
In the far north of Sweden a small, quiet village has been almost entirely wiped out by a mass murderer. The only clue left at the scene is a red ribbon. Among the victims are the grandparents of Judge Birgitta Roslin, who sets out to find the killer. Despite being brushed off by the police, Birgitta is determined to prove that the murders were not a random act of violence but are part of something far more dark and complex. Her investigation leads to the highest echelons of power and into the recesses of history where the seeds of evil deeds were planted.

What a mystery!!! The first few pages bring you into utter bewilderment that forces your fingers to turn the pages to answer all of the questions racing through your head!!

Man from Beijing

As much an essay on the internal dilemma China's central government faces as it competes in the global economy, Mankell manages to cover three continents and three centuries in this well crafted mystery.
