'A remarkable debut novel' Sunday Times 'The best historical thriller I've read in twenty years' A.J. Finn 'A thrilling, unnerving, clever and beautiful story. Reading it is like giving a little gift to oneself' Fredrik Backman The year is 1793, Stockholm. King Gustav of Sweden has been assassinated, years of foreign wars have emptied the treasuries, and the realm is governed by a self-interested elite, leaving its citizens to suffer. On the streets, malcontent and paranoia abound. A body is found in the city's swamp by a watchman, Mickel Cardell, and the case is handed over to investigator Cecil Winge, who is dying of consumption. Together, Winge and Cardell become embroiled in a brutal world of guttersnipes and thieves, mercenaries and madams, and one death will expose a city rotten with corruption beneath its powdered and painted veneer. The Wolf and the Watchman depicts the capacity for cruelty in the name of survival or greed - but also the capacity for love, friendship, and the desire for a better world. 'An unexpected masterpiece, a wild and unusual mix of genres that in one fell swoop succeeds in renewing the entire crime fiction genre' Arne Dahl

Berlin detective Bernie Gunther bows out at last in the 14th and final book of the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling series. With an introduction by Ian Rankin.

Dit was die vyftiende jaar van ekonokrasie. Vyftien jaar nadat ons ons demokrasie vir die Korporasie verruil het. Die politiek is geprivatiseer. Nes ons polisiediens en hospitale, dekades vroeŽr. Danksy tegnologie, die stygende reŽnval, die veranderende klimaat, kon die land aan derduisende yskoue, dankbare Amerikaners en Kanadese blyplek bied. Vir beide die aankomelinge ťn die gevestigde inwoners het voorspoed en ’n beter lewe aangebreek.
So het ons geglo, of so is aan ons vertel. Maar nou leer ek ’n nuwe taal. Die taal van onthou. En dit maak my gevaarlik.
Wanneer ’n mediese dokter die aandag van die Sentinels trek, moet hy deur ’n verwoeste landskap vlug. In ’n wÍreld waar ’n skynson lig verskaf, raak hy ’n pion in ’n komplot waarvan hy onbewus is. Selfs die verdwyning van sy kind tydens die chaos en die kosopstande voor die Wending kon hom nie hierop voorberei nie.
In ’n land sonder voŽls is ’n verdoemende ondersoek na die impak van ’n totalitÍre bestel en een man se besinning oor sterflikheid en dŪt wat ons mense maak.
