This review is from: Depths (Paperback)
I have read a lot of Henning Mankell's books and they are of varied style. I absolutely loved this novel, though it is quite dark and psychological. Some people have said that it is slow to start, I didn't find that at all, it was setting the scene. Because it is written in "short bursts" it is very easy to read.
As the book progresses you follow the story of Lars as his life unravels and he loses control. I found that I disliked him more and more as the book went on, I wanted to jump in and shake some sense into him!
A lot of books are entertaining, you read and enjoy them and as soon as you finish you forget about them, however this book is playing on my mind, I can't get rid of it!
If you have read Italian Shoes and enjoyed that then I think you will love this one.
