When he loses his girlfriend in tragic circumstances, he decides to fulfil her dream: to visit the grave of a legendary missionary in Zambia. On reaching Africa, Hans is struck by its beauty and mystery, and an opportunity of employment tempts him to stay. But he soon becomes embroiled in the issues of the local community. As relationships splinter and fray, Hans realises that his African dream is rapidly turning into a nightmare...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"He writes simply and gracefully...Mankell at his best" * Daily Telegraph *
"Brilliant...exceptionally well written...a white knuckle page-turner... Mankell translates the intrigue of the genre he has become so famous for into an existential whodunit: a profound and searing investigation into the loneliness of man" * Sunday Telegraph *
"A tense tale whose violence and uneasiness contrast to great effect with Olofson's deadpan narrative tone and Mankell's spare prose" * Spectator *
"The writer [is] clear about his authorial target, which is to expose the myth of Swedish neutrality with a savage portrait of its foreign aid system" * Guardian *
"The Eye of the Leopard is a thriller of the mind: a chilling journey into the depths of fear, alienation and despair" * Sunday Telegraph *
