Description
Henning Mankell's Faceless Killers is at once a gripping mystery in the classic detective tradition and an incisive commentary on contemporary society. Early one morning, a small-town farmer makes the horrible discovery that his neighbors have been brutally attacked during the night. An old man is dead, and his wife's dying words provide the only clue to the mystery: "foreign." In charge of the investigation is Inspector Kurt Wallander, a local cop whose personal life is in a shambles. Things get complicated when he has to deal with an eruption of violent antiforeigner sentiment, as well as a tough-minded--and very attractive--female district attorney, as he searches for the killers.

display_descriptionThe murder of a farming couple in Sweden unleashes a wave of xenophobia when it is learned that the woman's dying words were "foreigner." The case is given to Inspector Kurt Wallender, a lover of opera and booze. Part crime story, part look at the attitude of Swedes to immigrants.
