Winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Novel, international sensation Kjell Eriksson has dazzled American audiences with his stunning thrillers. In this gripping tale, a man walks out of a meeting in Sweden and disappears without a trace. Years later, a neighbor spots someone who looks like the missing man in Bangalore.
