The Blinded Man (1)
Henning Mankell meets The Wire in the first book in a major new Scandinavian crime series following an elite team of detectives on the hunt for the killer of several high profile businessmen.
Two of Sweden's most powerful businessmen have been murdered. In the face of mounting panic amongst the financial elite, a task force has been created to catch the culprit before he kills again. To his surprise, Detective Paul Hjelm, currently under investigation for misconduct after shooting a man who took a bank hostage, is summoned to join the team. But the killer has left no clues - even removing the bullets from the crime scenes - and Hjelm and his new teammates face a daunting challenge if they are to uncover the connection between the murdered men and identify any potential victims before he strikes again.
