The Man Who Smiled
Henning Mankell
"After killing a man in the line of duty, Inspector Kurt Wallander finds himself in a deep personal and professional crisis; during more than a year of sick leave, he turns to drink and vice to quiet his fears and anxieties. Once he pulls himself together, he vows to quit the Ystad police force for good - just before a friend who had asked Wallander to look into the death of his father winds up dead himself, shot three times." Far from leaving police work behind, Wallander instead must investigate a formidable suspect: a powerful business tycoon at the helm of a multinational company engaging in extralegal activities in the gross pursuit of profit. Ann-Britt Hoglund, the department's first female detective, proves to be his best ally as he tries to pierce the smiling facade of his prime suspect. But just as he comes close to uncovering the truth, the same shadowy threats responsible for the murders close in on Wallander himself.
