Description
Known for his detective fiction featuring Kurt Wallander, which has earned such awards as the Glass Key and Gold Dagger, Henning Mankell has also written dozens of plays, won the Astrid Lindgren Prize for his children's books, and produced more than a dozen non-mystery novels, including this heartbreaking tale. Swedish entomologist Hans Bengler arrives in Cape Town, South Africa, hoping to find a new species of insect—one that will be named after him. Instead he comes home with Daniel, an orphaned African boy of the San people, and begins exhibiting him. But Daniel's murdered parents call to the boy in dreams, and he realizes that to leave Bengler's strange, snowy land, he must learn how to walk on water.

"Mankell fully understands Daniel's radically different cultural perspective and indelibly captures the boy's longing to return to his homeland and the tragic consequences of his forced exile."—Publishers Weekly

"A haunting and fascinating story of clashes of culture and race in the 19th century as well as a touching, sometimes cruel examination of familial and other human ties."—Booklist
