More Wallander action

Firewall, One Step Behind by Henning Mankell


One step behind

I’m growing to like these books more and more. There is a depth and richness to the characterisation, particularly of Wallander himself, which make for an entertaining ride.

The contrast between the complex, challenging and frequently gruesome cases Wallander has to deal with and the routine difficulties of everyday life from doing the washing to sorting out car trouble (as well as more metaphysical problems) is particularly compelling.

Have only seen one of the BBC TV adaptations so far but intend to catch up in due course.
