Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, lives alone in a remote cottage in northern Sweden. Two things seem to consume him; his passion for the tango, and an obsession with the "demons" he believes to be pursuing him. Early one morning shots shatter Molin's window- by the time his body is found it is almost unrecognisable. Stefan Lindman is another off-the-job police officer.

Another classic dective tale from the pen (or computer) of Henning Mankell. It seems that these scandinavian writers can get it right almost all of the time. A thoroughly good book.
