A classic police-detective story that brings you inside the investigation to see how painstaking and at times frustrating police work can be. Also give you a good taste of what living in Sweden must be like.
I bought all of Mankell's books at the same time, I am on my fifth one. I love this series of books and really have enjoyed reading them one after the other. I bought them after watching the Wallander series starring Kenneth Branaugh, which I also loved. The books are a great read, I really enjoy the dialogue and the way they work to figure out the crime, not shoot 'em up but thoughtful deduction as to how the crimes took place and eventually who the perpetrator was. If you love mystery, you'll love these.
