Before the Frost jellemzők
In a wood outside Ystad, the police make a horrific discover: a severed head, and hands locked together in an attitude of prayer. A Bible lies at the victim's side, handwritten corrections and amendments on every page.
Linda Wallander, preparing to join the Ystad police force, arrives at the station. Showing all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper - whe becomes involved in the case and in the process is forced to confront a group of extremists bent on punishing the world's sinners.
