Abstract:

FACELESS KILLERS is the first in a series of Kurt Wallander crime novels. One frozen January morning, Inspector Wallander responds to what he expects is a routine call out. When he reaches the isolated farmhouse he discovers a bloodbath. An old man has been tortured and beaten to death, his wife barely alive. The woman supplies Wallander with his only clue: the perpetrators may have been foreign. When this is leaked to the press, it unleashes racial hatred. Kurt Wallander's personal life is in shambles. But now, Wallander must forget his troubles and throw himself into a battle against time and against mounting xenophobia.
