Then a new case comes in: A popular TV reporter is attacked, raped, and locked in the trunk of her own car.

The eye of the leopard by Henning Mankell( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Olofson arrives in Zambia not long after independence, hoping to fulfill the missionary dream of his friend Janice. He is also fleeing the traumas of his motherless childhood: his father's alcoholism, his best friend's terrible accident, Janice's death, his fear of an ordinary and stifled fate. Africa is a terrible shock, yet he chooses to stay and make it his home, almost against his instincts. Still, he never fully comes to understand his place as a mzungu, a wealthy white man among native blacks, and the fragile truce between the two groups. Rumors of an underground army of revolutionaries wearing leopard skins warn him that the truce is in danger of rupturing. As he grows increasingly fearful, he returns again and again to the events of the past that drove him out of Sweden. With these shifts in tone and time, Mankell achieves something powerful and haunting, a work that will remind readers of the unsettling mysteries that made him famous while displaying the sociopolitical awareness that is his hallmark. Alternating between Hans's years in Africa and those in Sweden, The Eye of the Leopard is a bravura achievement and a study in contrasts-black and white, poor and wealthy, Africa and Europe-both sinister and elegiac

"The body of 92-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death execution style in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm--a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really? Two more, similar murders happen--one of a wheelchair-bound old lady in a nursing home, and one of a man with a cellar filled with Nazi paraphernalia--and slowly the connections between the victims becomes evident: All of them were lifelong friends with Vera von Kaltensee, baroness, well-respected philanthropist, and head of an old, rich family that she rules with an iron fist. Pia and Oliver follow the trail, which leads them all the way back to the end of World War II and the area of Poland that then belonged to East Prussia. No one is who they claim to be, and things only begin to make sense when the two investigators realize what the bloody number stands for, and uncover an old diary and an eyewitness who is finally willing to come forward"--Provided by publisher
