Summary
At the age of five, Nelio witnessed his village burned to the ground, and the brutal massacre of his people. He escaped by chance but a man handed Nelio a gun and ordered him to shoot another boy. Instead he turned the gun on the bandit, shot and ran. Nelio joined a rough street gang, and began a very different way of life.

Street children
Summary expansion
A moving, deeply affecting story about street children in Africa, from the bestselling writer behind the Kurt Wallander series One night Jos hears gunfire from the deserted theatre next door to his bakery. He races to the theatre's uppermost gallery, and there beneath him on a spotlit stage lies the wounded body of Nelio, a street urchin renowned for living on his wits. Gasping, the wounded boy asks to be taken to the roof to breathe the beautiful air fresh of the Indian Ocean. On that theatre roof, his life ebbing away, Nelio begins to tell Jos his extraordinary story... Henning Mankell's Chronicler of the Winds is a dazzling new venture from the master of crime; a beautifully told fable of the African continent.`Mankell here creates a gentle, supernatural mystery...infused with dreaminess and wit' Observer
