Read full description of the books:
Reading this, Henning Mankell's latest and final in the Kurt Wallander series, was like finding myself in a well-known and beloved landscape: Kurt Wallanderland. Mankell is not a great stylist but he has managed to do something remarkable in his creation of Police Detective Wallander. I love this melancholy man. Smart, humane, brooding, somehow both slow and sharp, he is an old and dear friend to me.
I think I've now read all of the Wallander novels. A few of them don't quite work (The Dogs of Riga comes to mind) but most are terrific. Like Highsmith, another writer whose prose style seems to me flat, sometimes stilted, Mankell tells a damn good story. His evocation of landscape, a sector of Swedish society, of national and international politics, of Wallander and his family, give his novels life beyond the page.
In this last novel, Wallander has taken a small home in the country and is facing his mortality in everything he does. Linda, his daughter, has married a man whose father, a military submarine man, goes missing. Wallendar's hunt for him takes him to Copenhagen, Berlin, the Swedish island archipelago. More about plot need not be said.
Wallander, already I miss you.
