WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Being posted for the Australasian Wishlist Tag Game. Mankell is a great writer and Wallander is such a flawed Detective who just can't sort his personal life and drinking out.

One frozen January morning at 5am, Inspector Wallander responds to what he believes is a routine call out. When he reaches the isolated farmhouse he discovers a bloodbath.

An old man has been tortured and beaten to death, his wife lies barely alive beside his shattered body, both victims of a violence beyond reason. The woman supplies Wallander with his only clue: the perpetrators may have been foreign. When this is leaked to the press, it unleashes a tide of racism.

Wallander's life is a shambles. His wife has left him, his daughter refuses to speak to him, and even his ageing father barely tolerates him. He works tirelessly, eats badly, and drinks his nights away. But now Wallander must forget his troubles and throw himself into a battle against time and against mounting racial hatred.

Journal Entry 9 by wingmarmee463wing at Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Monday, April 12, 2021
First published in 1991 Mankell introduced us to Wallander and readers set out on, what would turn out to be, a long journey with this complicated and darkly charismatic character.
Well told and with a close eye for detail, Faceless Killers deals with racism, national identity, immigration policy and individual rights, issues that are still front and centre some30 years on.
Highly recommended.

I had forgotten I read this only a couple of years ago, but then the cover is different. I have watched the TV series and enjoy Wallander.

Not my usual genre, however, this book has travelled, so I'll see what it's like.
