View all copies of this ISBN edition:

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. With a bullet each, all three are murdered. 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.

"Swedish detective Wallander is forever one step behind the serial killer - but cleverly, the listener is kept one step ahead. I loved the snow-cool of its stripped-down language and the restrained Scandinavian narration." (Observer)

"What lifts this out of the ordinary is the character definition and extremely fine plotting" (The Express)

"Unsurprisingly, crime sells better than anything else on audio and I'm a big fan of the Wallander novels." (Daily Mail)

Book Description:

'Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended' Observer
