An infamous 'psychic' abandons his public persona, outing himself as a fake, to focus on his work as a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation in order to find "Red John," the madman who killed his wife and daughter.
With his rumpled raincoat, ever-present cigar, bumbling demeanour and Sherlock Holmesian powers of deduction, disarmingly polite homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo took on some of the most cunning murderers in Los Angeles, most of whom made one fatal, irrevocable mistake: underestimating his investigative genius.
Crusty old Greger Stehn and his equally unpopular dogs are poisoned with botulinum. Despite drawing out 20 million krone from the bank Greger lived in a hovel opposite a block of luxury flats where the wives are into yoga, keep fit and botox - which uses botulinum. The money has disappeared and the chief suspect is Johan Haartman, a plastic surgeon with heavy debts who was in the bank when Greger took out the money. Then he and his wife are also poisoned and their baby is fostered by a neighbour, whose child died in a cot death. Is she the killer? Written by

A old man goes to his bank to cash in 20 million kr.... with him is his 3 dogs......... The man is found dead a few days later and so is his 3 dogs.........money is no where to be found and the police suspects his neighbour to be the murderer, but nothing is as its seems to be...... a few days later also the neighbour and his family are found dead, and Wallander and his colleges has to be sharp to find out who the murderer is....... You will sit on the edge of your chair in this very exciton story. As usual the ending is very unexpected..... One of the best ever from Henning Mankell ever. The small town of Soldala is waiting for Wallander to find out why the old man and his 3 dogs and the old mans neighbor and his family must die...and where is the 20 mill. kr
