Storyline

The discovery of two slain youths in a dinghy which washes into Ystad brings hard-drinking Latvian detective Karlis Liepa from Riga. He tells Wallander they were his informants in a drug-smuggling ring after the dinghy, containing cocaine, is stolen. Liepa is murdered on his return home and Wallander travels to Riga to learn that the secretive detective did not show his case notes to his colleagues. After Wallander has discovered that his hotel room is bugged and he is being shadowed journalist Sergei Upitis tells him that Liepa was investigating corruption in his own force but Upitis is framed for Liepa's murder and found hanged in his cell, the Riga police then closing the case. However, Wallander, working with Liepa's widow Baiba and her cousin Inese, locate the missing case notes to unmask the traitor in the Latvian force. Written by don @ minifie-1

Kurt Goes International
14 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two men are found brutally killed, floating in a raft. A policeman from Latvia comes to assist in the investigation. It appears that the Russians have had a hand in this, probably the mafia. Shortly after the man leaves, Kurt finds that he has been killed. He decides to assist in the investigation of the death. When he gets to Riga, he is somehow being targeted by forces that are hard to interpret. He becomes involved with the widow of the murdered policeman. The two are pursued at times and realize that Kurt somehow has been given access to damning evidence. We get to see Wallander once again on the hunt, but he begins to feel something for the beautiful widow. This is a good episode because it keeps one guessing. I thought this was the best of the Mankell books as well. It's entertaining because our boy can't figure out if he is really in over his head or just dealing with local issues.
