The Fifth Woman by Henning Mankell
A Kurt Wallander Mystery (6th in series)
The New Press
Published in Sweden in 1996 under the title Den femte kvinnan, this novel was adapted into a 4-part made-for-television mini-series in Sweden that aired in 2002. It also served as the basis for the sixth episode of English-language adaptations of the books, Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh as the Swedish homicide detective.
About The Fifth Woman (from the publisher): In an African convent, four nuns and an unidentified fifth woman are brutally murdered, and the death of the unknown woman is covered up by the local police. A year later in Sweden, Inspector Kurt Wallander is baffled and appalled by two strange murders. Holger Eriksson, a retired car dealer and bird watcher, is impaled on sharpened bamboo poles in a ditch behind his secluded home, while the body of a missing florist is discovered strangled and tied to a tree. The only clues Wallander has to go on are a skull, a diary, and a photo of three men. What ensues is a case that will test Wallander's strength and patience, for in order to solve these murders he will need to uncover their elusive connection to the earlier unsolved murder in Africa of the fifth woman.
