The Start of Kurt Wallender's Police Career,
This review is from: The Pyramid: Kurt Wallander (Paperback)
This book filled in the missing 20 years and the incidents which made Kurt the person he became.It made fascinating reading, and, because each case was written as a separate chapter,it was not a collection of short stories which I would not have enjoyed.This is a must for lovers of Scandinavian thrillers !!I still find 'The White Lioness' as Mankell's best.
On a visit to my son in Sweden we followed a murder trail using the beginning of The White Lioness and found it great fun and Mankell is extremely accurate. Each time we go to Ystad we tend to look for Mankell villages
