The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case, except that there is no obvious suspect. Wallander follows a lead on a determined stalker. But when his alibi turns out to be airtight, Wallander begins to realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex and dangerous. Eventually, his search uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with the secret police and with a ruthless foreign agent. A riveting tale of international intrigue with compelling insights into the sinister side of modern life, The White Lioness will keep you on the knife edge of suspense.



"A first-class thriller." ( New York Times)"[Wallander is] a solid character, whose strengths and weaknesses are utterly credible, and Mankell knows how to make the most of his virtues." ( Publishers Weekly)"The action is skillfully grounded in human rather than political concerns....[Mankell's] stature as a major voice in international crime fiction remains undisturbed." ( Booklist)

Nothing to do with a real crime story....

I am 2/3 of the way through and about to give up. I thought I had bought a crime / detective story.. but instead this starts well but veers off into an essay about "why apartheid is inhumane" written in the style of a college teenager.

There is little character development and lots of stereotypes. The African constantly talking to his spirits...... the Russian shooting everything that moves. Silly ideas of how politics is steered by conspiracies.

Well behind Hakan Nesser und light years behind Jo Nesbo.
