Firewall – Henning Mankell

My first encounter with Swedish detective Kurt Wallander and I have to keep blocking out the image of Kenneth Brannagh who plays him in the TV series, which I’ve avoided. Definitely keen to read some of his other outings – although the repeated references to this being the most difficult case of his (already extensive) career do make me wonder if I risk disappointment when it comes to plot…..

Still the combination of computer hackery, ingeniously interconnecting characters and plotlines and gruesome murders, albeit a touch close to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, together with the police force’s own internal politicking, kept me turning the pages well after dusk has fallen by the pool of the Al Manzil hotel. link: Firewall – Henning Mankell
