The Man From Beijing

The Man From Beijing

Henning Mankell

A master of the crime genre, Henning Mankell focuses his latest page-turner on a case that stretches across the globe and the centuries. The population of a town is slaughtered in a quite hamlet in northern Sweden and a judge in a distant town makes a family connection that leads her on a search for answers. In order to solve the riddle, her quest takes her through the archives of Chinese immigrants building the American railroads in 1860, through her own past as a student revolutionary, and all the way to Beijing.
