In the Swedish hamlet of Hesjövallen, January 1960, nineteen people have been massacred. The only clue is a red ribbon found at the scene. Judge Birgitta Roslin's Andrén grandparents, and an Andrén family from Nevada are among the victims. She then discovers the nineteenth-century diary of an Andrén ancestor, a gang master on the American transcontinental railway, that describes brutal treatment of Chinese slave workers.

Mankell knows how to write chilling murders with complex characters, situations and locations. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat while hooking you with each small clue and connection. One is drawn in with the knowledge that no one is predictable and no one is safe. Excellent story.

I don't know what reading this one would be like, but there came a point when I wanted to say "Basta!." I am just not likely to do it, i.e., read it, but somewhere along the line the spirit of Stephen King took over and this just started to seem bloated. It might just be me. I'm willing to contemplate it.
