Back to his best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The White Lioness: Kurt Wallander (Paperback)
After being disappointed by the second Kurt Wallander outing (The Dogs of Riga) this is a welcome return to the form that was demonstrated in the first book (Faceless Killers).
The book begins with the investigation into the disappearance and murder of a local estate agent. As Wallander and collegues trawl through the evidence for the case there appears to be more behind the murder of the estate agent that was first thought.
The book then sets out on a thriller that where two stories spanning two continents are intertwined, resulting in a truly gripping ending.
If, like me, you were impressed with Faceless Killers, but disappointed by The Dogs of Riga, this is a welcome return to form. Highly recommended.

Morse fan says:
This was extremely disappointing. I have nearly all Mankell's Wallander books and I like most of them. The White Lioness is a poor effort and I found it a waste of time. The story replies heavily on contrived situations where the baddies get away due to the incompetence of the police or Interpol or in one case the failure of a telex machine. Once or twice this is ok but where it is the only way that the author can find to continue the storyline it becomes pathetic. I give it one star and would recommend a no purchase.
