Prima del gelo
Henning Mankell
17 maggio 2014
Svezia. Sei cigni vengono cosparsi di benzina e fatti bruciare. Poco dopo una telefonata anonima avvisa la polizia di Ystad. L'ispettore Kurt Wallander si reca sul posto. Con lui c'è sua figlia Linda, che ha appena terminato l'accademia e tra qualche settimana prenderà ufficialmente servizio nella polizia. Qualche tempo dopo tocca a un vitello venire arso. È solo l'opera di uno squilibrato, un sadico che ama tormentare gli animali? L'intuito ereditato dal padre suggerisce a Linda Wallander che ci sia sotto qualcosa, soprattutto quando scompaiono nel nulla una sua amica e una solitaria etnografa che lavorava nei dintorni. Così la ragazza inizia a indagare mettendosi personalmente a rischio per affrontare un'inquietante serie di eventi che rischia di far terminare la sua carriera nella polizia prima ancora che sia iniziata. Considerato l'erede di Simenon, Henning Mankell si conferma in questo romanzo uno dei maestri del giallo contemporaneo.
