The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case, except that there is no obvious suspect. Wallander follows a lead on a determined stalker. But when his alibi turns out to be airtight, Wallander begins to realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex and dangerous. Eventually, his search uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with the secret police and with a ruthless foreign agent.

Any additional comments?

An audio book needs to be captivating. This book went off on too many tangents for an audio format. I dont listen to audio books from beginning to end. I listen over several days.the names of the people, towns and information was too lengthy to remember from sessionto session. The backtracking and extensive information made it very slow and sometimes boring.
