This review is from: The Stand (Kindle Edition)
The first sections of the book encompassing plague, death, surviving were pretty good, convincing, readable . . but the remainder turned into a rather feeble Amerikan Lord of the Rings, complete with all-seeing eyes and Black Evil One, hobbits on a quest, duplicitous golums and religious claptrap. I think I'm being a bit harsh, but it is a long book and it should be better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a sad end . . ., 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many I have read, devoured, every one of the series. They're unusual page-turners, focused on one small town in the context of modern Sweden. The characters, most obviously Wallander himself, reflect the uncertainties and problems of the country. Wallander is not a happy cop, even though he's pretty good at his job, but his flaws and mistakes make him a very human one. I felt a huge amount of sympathy for each disappointment he experiences, recognises and never quite triumphs over.
Oh dear, this last book is such thin fare. The plot is unbelievable and insubstantial even though it attempts to be a Le Carré style troubled espionage thriller. Interspersed in it are interminable - boring, I'm sorry to say - discourses on Wallander's old age. For Pete's sake, he's only 60! The unnecessarily spiteful exchanges between Wallander and daughter Linda made me dislike both of them - never the case with the other books. The contrived ending was as disappointing as the rest, and doubly disappointing when the preceding books were so very good.
About half-way through I got the distinct impression that Mankell didn't want to write this book, had grown thoroughly to dislike Wallander and was just going through the motions . . . Wish I hadn't read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An imperfect man, 13 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Italian Shoes (Kindle Edition)
A quiet and reflective story of the culpable mistakes and their consequences made by an all too human man. I was thoroughly engaged and interested and I didn't find the central character unsympathetic, even if he is, at heart, quite flawed. I found the book really thought-provoking. And, it seems strange to say, enjoyable.

Absolutely excellent in every respect. Large (Green) size is easily big enough for our Labrador, comfortable and looks tough. Fast delivery too.

Just received, so early days yet, but first impressions are excellent. Thick soft flexible rope with solid well-made fittings and comfortable handle loop. Looking forward to trying it out on our one-year old Labrador.
