A compelling story of a child driven to violence through loss and loneliness

About the Author

Henning Mankell (1948-2015) became a worldwide phenomenon with his crime writing, gripping thrillers and atmospheric novels set in Africa. His prizewinning and critically acclaimed Inspector Wallander Mysteries continue to dominate bestseller lists all over the globe and his books have been translated into forty-five languages and made into numerous international film and television adaptations: most recently the BAFTA-award-winning BBC television series Wallander, starring Kenneth Branagh. Driven by a desire to change the world and to fight against racism and nationalism, Mankell devoted much of his time to working with charities in Africa, including SOS Children's Villages and PLAN International, where he was also director of the Teatro Avenida in Maputo. In 2008, the University of St Andrews conferred Henning Mankell with an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in recognition of his major contribution to literature and to the practical exercise of conscience. www.henningmankell.com


"Mankell writes lead travel feature on Mozambique, credits novel" * Guardian *
"Henning Mankell reviews the new John le Carre (Daniel is credited)" * Saturday Telegraph Review *
"4*, It's an acutely observed and slow-burning psychological thriller, written with Mankell's typically detached prose, making the violently tragic end all the more powerful." * Big Issue Scotland *
"Mankell pulls no punches in this bleak but brilliant examination of misguided humanism." * Metro *
"3*, Many a crime writer has been cast adrift after retiring a signature character but there was never any danger of that with Mankell. He was always, above all, a consummate novelist. [...] a powerfully involving and uncompromising novel about the loss of childhood and innocence." * Daily Express *
