Storyline

An elderly woman is murdered in a wood by a man she saw setting fire to swans. He buries her corpse with a bible annotating the book of Revelations and from his finger-prints he is identified as Jannek Langas, a religious maniac and arsonist. He has escaped from a secure unit but nonetheless has a healthy bank account in an assumed name. At the same time Anna, a friend of Linda, disappears after a cryptic visit to Wallander. Following Langas's suicide by immolation Wallander learns that Langas and Anna belonged to the same, fundamentalist Christian group and that other members are dying. Wallander must discover who is behind the killings and whether Anna is accomplice or victim - or even alive. Written by don @ minifie-1

Fanaticism
15 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a man with a messiah complex who decides to do God's work by destroying people who have committed "sins." (I won't get on my soap box about how destructive religion can be (we need only look at the world in general), but rather at the ease with which people can be talked into almost anything. Anna is a friend of Linda (Kurt's daughter) and she comes to see Kurt one night, full of guilt and uncertainty. Soon she disappears from sight. Now churches are set afire, people are dying at their own hands, but there is an overriding consistency to these things. Anna is carrying around a secret and seeks atonement. Unfortunately, the atonement only comes in death. Her mother and father are at the center of all this and, as usual, Kurt must wade through a lot of muck to find the truth.
