On the Swedish coastline, two bodies, victims of grisly torture and cold execution, are discovered in a life raft. With no witnesses, no motives, 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 the routine once more, until he is called suddenly to Riga and plunged into an alien world in which shadows are everywhere, everything is watched, and old regimes will do anything to stay alive.

This is the best Kurt Wallander mystery that I've read so far. This is the third book in the series by Henning Mankell. Masterpiece Mystery has made some of these mysteries into TV dramas. This particular book was very, very suspenseful. The main character, the Swedish detective, Kurt Wallander, is in constant danger in this story. The setting is in Latvia, after the fall of the Berlin Wall. I enjoyed it very much.
