Publisher's Summary

Stopping to use a cash machine one evening, a man inexplicably falls to the ground: dead.
A taxi driver is brutally murdered by two teenage girls. Quickly apprehended, they appal local policemen with their total lack of remorse. One girl escapes police custody and disappears without a trace.
Soon afterwards, a blackout covers half the country. When an engineer arrives at the malfunctioning power station, he makes a grisly discovery.
Inspector Kurt Wallander is sure that these events must be linked - somehow. Hampered by the discovery of betrayals in his own team, lonely and frustrated, Wallander begins to loose conviction in his role as a detective. The search for answers leads Wallander dangerously close to a shadowy group of anarchic terrorists, hidden within the anonymity of cyberspace. Somehow these criminals seem always to know the police's next move and Wallander finds himself fighting to outsmart them.

Excellent - one of the best

I enjoy Henning Mankell's Wallander novels and this is the one I have enjoyed the most so far. The story is well put together and moves along at the right pace with good twists and turns in the plot. Sean Barrett's narration is excellent and this was one of the best listening experiences I have had.
