The Eyes of Eugen Kallmann
The Eyes of Eugen KallmannHåkan Nesser
The year is 1995. The scene: a secondary school in a town located deep in the vast woodlands of northern Sweden. The main cast of characters is comprised of a number of students, a few teachers, and a student counselor. And the recently deceased Swedish teacher – Eugen Kallmann.
The story takes place in a time of extremism and prejudice. There are hastily drawn swastikas and racist graffiti painted on the walls of the school, and somebody is sending threatening letters. Rummaging through a forgotten desk drawer, a colleague finds the diaries of Eugene Kallmann.
Who was Eugen Kallmann, really? And what is going on with the investigation into his death?
