Another Kurt Wallander novel. This one is set in the early ’90s. Dead bodies in a life raft wash up on shore outside of Ystad and Wallander is called in to investigate. They discover the life raft probably came from Latvia and a Latvian detective comes to help investigate. When things are wrapped up, the detective is sent home and is murdered upon arriving. Wallander then gets involved in a lot of really intense intrigue. Wallander has to sneak around and shake tails and evade secret police. This is an intense story from the end of the Cold War. Quite the adventure.
