Customer Review

on 31 July 2010
This book of short stories about Wallander is just as good as one of the longer novels. We follow him during his early police career. The stories show several dramatic events happen to him, helping us to understand the man he becomes in later life. In the younger Wallander we can see many of the character traits he has in the longer books. The stories show him making mistakes and trying to learn from them. I loved the fact that he has obviously always been inept when dealing with women and completely undomesticated. At one point he carries his dirty washing back and forth in the boot of his car several times before he manages to get it washed! And always the ongoing theme of the changes taking place in Swedish society and the darkness hidden at it's core. Highly recommended if you love the other 'Wallander' books.
