Swedish Mystery writer Henning Mankell

Post by Tom Palven » Thu Sep 06, 2012 1:00 am

I've been enjoyng mysteries by Henning Mankell lately, who the Los Angeles Times called "Sweden's greatest living mystery writer." I recommend starting with his first, Faceless Killers. Not the typical serial killer fare, nor the typical protagonist. Police inspector Kurt Wallander is no James Bond, thank you very much!
