About this item

In the tradition of the Scandinavian crime fiction megahits comes this award-winning novel featuring a seventy-year-old amateur detective.When authorities bungle the cover-up of a young boy’s murder, seventy-year-old Erhard Joergensen, who has exiled himself but who sees more than most, rises to the occasion as self-appointed detective in a crime thriller that tackles the human condition.Erhard, who had severed all ties with his wife and children in Denmark many years ago, stumbles through life as a taxi driver and, occasionally, as a piano tuner for the few wealthy inhabitants of the island of Fuerteventura off the coast of Africa, his days dominated by drink and hopeless desire.The mystery of a dead boy, whose body is found in a cardboard box locked in the trunk of a crashed car, forces Erhard to confront life once more. But what can an old man do—especially one who is a self-confessed loser, a nine-****** romantic, an accidental detective who refuses to stay up-to-date and knows nothing about the Internet, mobile phones, or social media—to solve a modern mystery with threads stretching way beyond his island?
