This review is from: The Pyramid: Kurt Wallander (Paperback)
For regular readers of Henning Mankell this is a must...it creates a past for Wallander that is not given when "Faceless Killers" opens and cleverly links together other persons and events from his"life" in the spaces between the novels.Clever(perhaps a little commercially exploitative?) and readable..and themematically strong on Mankell's abiding sense of democratic Sweden's anxieties from the '90's onwards...can they maintain both a welfare state and democracy as the world around them impinges on Sweden and "home" becomes a more worrying and disturbing place.
