This is the first Henning Mankel book I've read. I've rated it just OK. It started out very fast paced and had me hooked. However after that things got really bogged down. The story skipped around,first to China and the American west of 100yrs ago then to modern day China. It was more historical fiction than mystery and very slow going. The ending picked up the pace again but it wasn't really satisfying.
