by Astrid Lindgren

As the car races down the hill and disappears the road stands empty in the dawn light, all that is left is the faint smell of petrol in the air and a small, wet handkerchief lying on the roadside. Eva-Lotta’s handkerchief.
When Kalle and his friend Anders witness a terrible kidnapping in the dead of night, they know it’s time for Kalle to prove his Master Detective skills again. Little does he know that the trail of clues will lead to his most daring adventure yet. Can he outsmart a gang of blackmailers and kidnappers who will stop at nothing to get what they want and also avoid being captured too?
