The remarkable conclusion to the Wallander mystery series.
Wallander is at his best resolving the mystery around the disappearance of his future son-in-law's parents. And that despite the fact that his physical and mental health is failing.
I love the rational and almost sombre atmosphere and the lack of drama in Henning Mankell's books. It shows methodical police work without hollywood action.
One of the best crime series I have read.
The character of Scandinavia -- blunt, unsentimental and supremely rational on one level and yet taciturn on another -- comes through in this closing story of the Swedish detective Kurt Wallander. I was fascinated by the spy mystery, which on its own might not make much of a story, by the way Wallander relates to his daughter and to his daughter's upper-crust in-laws-to-be. I was bemused by the way he manages his emotional life and his health. It's a story without romance, even though a section of it features W.'s grief over a long-ago love affair and the death of his former lover. Refreshingly different.
