The best-selling, award-winning author of the Kurt Wallander series delivers an incredible stand-alone masterpiece: a bone-chilling mystery that spans two centuries and four continents.
In the far north of Sweden a small, quiet village has been almost entirely wiped out by a mass murderer. The only clue left at the scene is a red ribbon. Among the victims are the grandparents of Judge Birgitta Roslin, who sets out to find the killer. Despite being brushed off by the police, Birgitta is determined to prove that the murders were not a random act of violence but are part of something far more dark and complex. Her investigation leads to the highest echelons of power and into the recesses of history where the seeds of evil deeds were planted.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

What A Page-Turner!!
What a mystery!!! The first few pages bring you into utter bewilderment that forces your fingers to turn the pages to answer all of the questions racing through your head!!
Best story since Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
A most satisfying read for those lamenting that we won't see anything like Steig Larsen's work again. Multiple faceted, suspenseful, detailed but also globe and time spanning, the Man From Beijing kept this reader up at night to see what would happen next.
