Excellent writer, great series. Mankell looks at the very dark side of Swedish society. Wallander, the hero of these policiers, is a smart guy with family and health issues. A few of the books were filmed with Kenneth Branagh in the role for the BBC (I think).
Kurt Wallander is battling a newly discovered health problem while trying to solve the worst serial murder case he has ever encountered. As always, characters are well drawn and extremely real. It is not hard to imagine knowing these people. Highly recommended.
