Synopsis of book»

A Swedish county commissioner walks out of a high-level meeting and disappears. Many years later, one of the town’s natives is convinced that he’s caught a glimpse of the missing man while travelling in Bangalore, India. When the rumours reach his hometown, a veteran police officer stumbles across a seemingly unrelated case. Ann Lindell must investigate a severed female foot found where a striking number of inhabitants are single men. But the owner of the house where the victim is believed to have lived is no longer able to answer any questions...
