It was going to be a beautiful day. Summer had come to Skane at last. Part One CHAPTER ONE On Wednesday, 7 August 1996, Kurt Wallander came close to being killed in a traffic accident just east of Ystad. m. He had just driven through Nybrostrand on his way out to Osterlen. Suddenly he had seen a truck looming in front of his Peugeot. He heard the truck's horn blaring as he wrenched the steering wheel to one side. Afterwards he had pulled off the road. That was when the fear set in. His heart pounded in his chest.
Come and see me in Rynge," she said. "But wait a couple of weeks. " Wallander got in his car and drove back to Ystad. He was going straight home to make an appointment with his doctor. Then he would sign up to use the laundry and clean his flat. Since he wasn't in a hurry, he chose the longer way home. He liked driving, just looking at the landscape and letting his mind wander. He had just passed Valleberga when the phone rang. It was Martinsson. Wallander pulled over. "I've been trying to get hold of you," Martinsson said.
He kept his hands tightly clenched on the wheel. As he calmed down he realised what had happened. He had fallen asleep at the wheel. Nodded off just long enough for his old car to begin to drift into the opposite lane. One second longer and he would have been dead, crushed by the heavy truck. The realisation made him feel suddenly empty. The only thing he could think of was the time, a few years earlier, when he had almost hit an elk outside Tingsryd. But then it had been dark and foggy. This time he had nodded off at the wheel.
