The Football Mystery

Martin Widmark, illustrated by Helena Willis

It’s time for Lasse and Maja’s fourteenth case. Every year a very important football match is played in Valleby. The team from Valleby are to play the team from Solbacka. The silver shield is glittering in the sunlight, and the crowd cheer as the players run onto the pitch. Here comes Sister Mary from the school who is playing as in midfield with Muhammed Karat. And with Barbro Palm playing at full-back and the chief of police in goal, nothing can go wrong – can it? Particularly as the Valleby team’s new trainer, the postman Franco Bollo, has a background in professional football from Italy… Hasn’t he?
