Henning Mankell / Seán Barrett
October 1914: the destroyer Svea emerged from the Stockholm archipelago. On board was Lars Tobiasson-Svartman a naval engineer charged with making depth soundings to find a navigable channel for the Swedish navy. His instinct for his precise profession is reflected in the comfortable domesticity he enjoys with his wife - herself meticulous in every detail. When Tobiasson-Svartman alights on a barren skerry presumed uninhabited he is surprised to discover a young woman Sara Fredrika. Despite her almost feral appearance something about her strikes him to the core. When the Svea returns to Gothenburg Tobiasson-Svartman remains haunted by his chance encounter and he is now compelled to find any pretence to return to the remote islet.
