Henning Mankell


I loved his book Secrets in the Fire. It was one of the best books ive ever read!!

I read the book 'Hunden som sprang mot en stärnja'. I didn't like the story, it was pretty boring. It was about a boy who wanted to find a dog, just an ordinairy dog, which ran on the street in the dark nights. I guess I didn't like it because it has happened in the past.

Read "Faceless Killers" a few years ago and thought it excellent. Have only recently been able to get others of the Kurt Wallander series - police procedurals that read like novels and have all the normal human dilemma stuff - problems of aging, aloneness, modern society, and so on, combined with a smystery. Compelling and first rate reading; cannot recommend thes books highly enough!

This book is lovely, the only thing i didn't like i found it hard to read and understand it! I believe you should make a movie about it!!

Every now and again, for me at least, I pick up a book and find it a struggle initially and then after a few chapters the story springs suddenly to life. This was my experience with Faceless Killers, the first book I had ever read by Henning Mankell. I am now reading One Step Behind and loving it. Wallander is real, raw, human.

A rare find; his characters, especially Wallender, pulse with life. I find so much of me in that character. I've read three of his books and when I've read them all will reread them.

Kurt Wallander is one the finest creations in crime fiction of the last 10 years. He is a believable character in a believable setting with so many of the problems that beset us all. These books are a series that should be recommended to anyone you know.

The books of Mankell our the true successors of Sjöwall and Wahlöö's serie! I have some books of Mankell waiting to be read. Just a lack of time for the moment...
