Chronicler of the Winds

ebook

A moving, deeply affecting story about street children in Africa, from the bestselling writer behind the Kurt Wallander series

One night José hears gunfire from the deserted theatre next door to his bakery. He races to the theatre's uppermost gallery, and there beneath him on a spotlit stage lies the wounded body of Nelio, a street urchin renowned for living on his wits. Gasping, the wounded boy asks to be taken to the roof to breathe the beautiful air fresh of the Indian Ocean. On that theatre roof, his life ebbing away, Nelio begins to tell José his extraordinary story... Henning Mankell's Chronicler of the Winds is a dazzling new venture from the master of crime; a beautifully told fable of the African continent.

'Mankell here creates a gentle, supernatural mystery...infused with dreaminess and wit' Observer
