Summary
Stopping to use a cash machine one evening, a man falls to the ground: dead. A taxi driver is brutally murdered by two teenage girls who demonstrate a complete lack of remorse. One girl escapes police custody and disappears without trace. Soon afterwards, a blackout covers half the country. When an engineer arrives at the malfunctioning power station, he makes a grisly discovery... Inspector Kurt Wallander is sure that these events must be linked - somehow. Hampered by the discovery of betrayals in his own team, lonely and frustrated, Wallander begins to lose conviction in his role as a detective. And somehow these criminals seem always to know the police's next move

Summary
Stopping to use a cash machine late one evening, a man inexplicably falls to the ground dead. Then a taxi driver is savagely attacked by two teenage girls. Quickly apprehended, they appal Inspector Wallander and his colleagues with their total lack of remorse. One girl escapes from custody and disappears. Soon afterwards a power failure causes an engineer to visit the malfunctioning sub-station, where he makes a grisly discovery. Wallander is sure that these events must be linked. His search for answers leads him perilously close to a shadowy group of anarchic terrorists hidden within the anonymity of cyberspace, and Wallander finds himself fighting to the bitter end to outsmart them
