C'est l'automne en Scanie avec son lot de pluie et de vent. Désabusé, Wallander aspire à une retraite paisible et rêve d'avoir une maison à la campagne et un chien. Il visite une ancienne ferme, s'enthousiasme pour les lieux, pense avoir trouvé son bonheur. Pourtant, lors d'une dernière déambulation dans le jardin à l'abandon, il trébuche sur ce qu'il croit être les débris d'un râteau. Ce sont en fait les os d'une main affleurant le sol. Les recherches aboutissent à une découverte encore plus macabre. Au lieu d'une maison, Wallander récolte une enquête. Jusqu'où devra-t-il remonter le temps, et à quel prix, pour identifier cette main ? Concis et vif, ce court roman est suivi d'une réflexion de l'auteur sur la genèse et l'évolution de sa série Wallander. Né en 1948, Henning Mankell partage sa vie entre la Suède, le Mozambique, et la France. Lauréat de nombreux prix littéraires. Outre la célèbre " série Wallander ", il est l'auteur de romans sur l'Afrique ou des questions de société, de pièces de théâtre et d'ouvrages pour la jeunesse. Traduit du suédois par Anna Gibson

The bestselling author of the Kurt Wallander series delivers a “short, beautiful, and ultimately life-affirming novel” about the path to self-acceptance (Booklist). From the prize-winning “master of atmosphere” comes the surprising and affecting story of a man well past middle age who suddenly finds himself on the threshold of renewal (The Boston Globe). Living on a tiny island that is surrounded by ice during the long winter months, Fredrik Welin is so lost to the world that he cuts a hole in the ice every morning and lowers himself into the freezing water to remind himself that he is alive. Haunted by memories of the terrible mistake that drove him to this island and away from a successful career as a surgeon, he lives in a stasis so complete that an anthill grows undisturbed in his living room. When an unexpected visitor disrupts this frigid existence, Frederik begins an eccentric, elegiac journey—one that displays the full height of Henning Mankell’s storytelling powers. A deeply human tale of loss and redemption, Italian Shoes is “a voyage into the soul of a man” expertly crafted with “snares that Mankell has hidden with a hunter’s skill inside this spectral landscape” (The Guardian). “Beautiful.” —The Boston Globe “A fine meditation on love and loss.” —The Sunday Telegraph “Intense and precisely detailed. . . . A hopeful account of a man released from self-imposed withdrawal.” —The Independent “The creator of police detective Kurt Wallander presents a tale of mortal reckoning in which all the deaths are natural but none the less powerful.” —Kirkus Reviews
