The Grave
(the English title is unconfirmed at this point)
Originally published in Dutch as Het Graf in 2004.

This is a short novel of approximately 90 pages which was distributed as a complimentary gift to readers in The Netherlands who purchased other crime novels during the month of June 2004.

Translated from the Dutch by Ine Jacet:
Kurt Wallander - the inspector who worked in the area south of Sweden - in The Grave is looking at a house which he is considering to purchase. A facelift has been decided necessary, but the house has a large garden and a beautiful view. While Wallander walks through the garden, he trips over something. Just as he is on the way to his car to leave, asks himself what he has stumbled upon. He walks back the garden and sees that it was a decomposing human hand.
