Summary
On the Swedish coastline, two bodies, victims of grisly torture and cold execution, are discovered in a life raft; after the victims are traced to Latvia, Major Liepa of the Riga police takes over the investigation. Thinking his work done, Detective Kurt Wallander slips into the routine once more, until he is called suddenly to Riga and plunged into an alien world in which shadows are everywhere, everything is watched, and old regimes will do anything to stay alive.
