9780099541882: The Return Of The Dancing Master

WINNER OF THE CWA GOLD DAGGER FOR SIDETRACKED

Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, is living alone in a remote cottage in the vast forests of northern Sweden. He has two obsessions: one is the tango and the other is a conviction that he is being hunted, constantly pursued by 'demons'. He has no close friends, no close neighbours, and by the time his body is eventually found, Molin is almost unrecognisable.

Lindman, a police officer on extended sick leave, hears of the death of his former colleague and, to take his mind off his own problems, decides to involve himself in the case. What he discovers, to his horror and disbelief, is a network of evil almost unimaginable in this remote district, and one which seems impossible to link to Molin's death.

Review:

"Absorbing, chilling and dripping with evil atmosphere" ( The Times)

"Mankell is the master of the slow burn, and The Return of the Dancing Master makes us crave more of his misty, haunted atmosphere" ( Independent)

"A worthy successor to the Wallander whodunnits" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"The new cast is introduced with customary brilliance, and the political edge suggests a fine new direction from this immense talent" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Compelling...there's no one better at the genre... His characters are his greatest invention" ( San Francisco Chronicle)

From the Publisher:

'Questions of responsibility and morality, of justice and democracy, are explicitly raised. And this is unusual in detective fiction. Superbly translated by Laurie Thompson, I found this book a worthy successor to the Wallander whodunits' Ian Thomson, Sunday Telegraph
