He knocked on Martinsson's half-open door, but the room was empty. The thin folder from their meeting that day was lying on the desk. Wallander took it and went into his office. He quickly leafed through the few papers there were and stared at the three postcards, but he was having trouble concentrating. He kept thinking about what the doctor had told him. Finally Ebba called him from the reception desk and told him that Eva Hillström had arrived. Wallander walked out to meet her. A group of older, jovial men were on their way out.
But when she finally did, she was vague and noncommittal. Not now, not yet. Why couldn't things stay as they were? When Wallander returned to Sweden, he felt dejected and unsure of where things stood. The autumn went by without another meeting. They had talked about it, made plans, and considered various alternatives, but nothing had eventuated. Wallander became jealous. Was there another man in Riga? Someone he didn't know anything about? On several occasions he called her in the middle of the night and although she insisted that she was alone, he had the distinct feeling that there was someone with her.

" Wallander thought about his doctor's appointment. "I think you'll have to ask someone else this time," he answered. " "Then I'll ask Ann-Britt. " "Or else they'll think just the opposite," Wallander said. m. Wallander had not managed to do anything more than rock back and forth in his chair and look out the window.
