Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Faceless Killers: Kurt Wallander (Kindle Edition)
Haven't watched the TV series so don't have any preconceived ideas as to what Wallander looks or acts like.
This story (although a little difficult to get a handle on the Swedish names)was a great read for me.
Wallander seems to be a tradional detective but gets lead away by his hunches which often are wrong.
Brutal murders, immigration and throw into the mix racial hatred and you have the makings of a very good plot which worked well.
Translation from Swedish to English does mean that the writing doesn't flow quite as well as it might have but this is only a minor criticism.
