Description
The eagerly awaited second mystery from the award-winning Kurt Wallander series. Mankell's tenacious sleuth, Inspector Kurt Wallander, returns to investigate a horrific crime in his Scandinavian homeland that soon involves him with a troubled apartheid-era South Africa. When his search for the truth behind the execution-style killing of a Swedish housewife uncovers a plot to assassinate Nelson Mandela, Wallander finds himself in a tangle with the South African secret service and a ruthless ex-KGB agent. Combining heart-pounding suspense with probing social commentary, The White Lioness is certain to win new American readers for this master of the detective genre.

display_descriptionThe 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.
