Product Details

Praise

“With his new Wallander novel Mankell ups his game and enters John le Carré territory.” —Los Angeles Times

“[The] perpetually dour Swedish detective is at his gloomy best.” —The New York Times Book Review

“At once richer in personal detail and more suspenseful than either a work of strictly mainstream fiction or a simple police novel could be. Mankell remains in the vanguard of those writers taking the crime story back to its origins in the realistic novel.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“A magnificent finale.” —Financial Times

“Arguably Mankell’s best Wallander book—which makes the finale for his rule-breaking, overeating, over-drinking, depressed but ultimately good-hearted and righteous detective all the more poignant.” —The Plain Dealer
 
“Mankell’s prose is as blunt and pragmatic as his hero.” —The New Yorker
 
“By far the most personal and poignant in this classic and compulsive series.” —New York Journal of Books
 
“Mankell’s ability to unspool a mystery and Wallander’s ability to solve it are still at the head of the class.” —Newsday
 
“A story that rings deep and hinges on personal stakes. . . . It is the voice of the author—through his hero—and the illumination of layers of life in a thankless profession that lead into a delicious abyss of urgency battling with hopelessness, a rationalization of risk versus a reward already buried under a false headstone.” —The Oregonian
 
“A moving portrait of a man entering old age.” —The Times Literary Supplement (London)
 
“A richly embroidered tapestry.” —Providence Journal
