Description

“Eriksson adds a new twist to the Swedish crime story, one especially likely to appeal to Henning Mankell fans.”

--Booklist

 

Winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Novel, international sensation Kjell Eriksson has dazzled American audiences with his stunning thrillers. In this gripping tale, a man walks out of a meeting in Sweden and disappears without a trace. Years later, a neighbor spots someone who looks like the missing man in Bangalore. Could it be the same man? And what connection, if any, does he have to the baffling case that Inspector Ann Lindell is handling back home? Fabulous writing and nail-biting suspense combine in The Hand that Trembles to produce a story only a superstar like Eriksson could achieve.
