Description:
 Kurt Wallander the 60-year-old Swedish detective unofficially pursues a case that's part mystery, part spy thriller. At the 75th birthday party for Håkan von Enke, a retired Swedish naval commander highly placed and deeply respected in Swedish military circle, he tells Wallander about a 1980 incident involving an unidentified submarine that "invaded Swedish territorial waters." When he was about to fire depth charges to bring the sub to the surface, higher-ups ordered von Enke to abort. A few days after confiding in Wallander, von Enke and his wife disappear. The investigation leads him back to the era of cold war espionage, where Wallander finds himself deep in a decades-old mystery involving foreign spies, submarines, and Cold War politicsAll are welcome to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
