Faceless Killers marks the "brilliant US debut" (<I>Library Journal</I>) of Henning Mankell's highly successful Kurt Wallander detective series. Taut and atmospheric, this winner of Sweden's Best Mystery Award is a gripping mystery in the classic detective tradition, hailed by the <I>Los Angeles Times</I> as "an exquisite novel of mesmerizing depth and suspense." Early one morning, a small-town farmer discovers that his neighbors have been victims of a brutal attack during the night: An old man has been bludgeoned to death, and his tortured wife lies dying before the farmer's eyes. The only clue is the single word she utters before she dies: "foreign." In charge of the investigation is Inspector Kurt Wallander, a local detective whose personal life is in a shambles. His family is falling apart, he's gaining weight, he drinks too much and sleeps too little. Tenacious and levelheaded in his sleuthing, he and his colleagues must contend with a wave of violent xenophobia as they search for the killers. <I>Faceless Killers</I> is a razor-sharp, stylishly dark combination of police procedural and searing social commentary that reaches beyond its genre to produce "a superior novel--and a harbinger of great things to come" (<I>Booklist</I>).
