Second in the Kurt Wallander series.

On the Swedish coastline, two bodies, victims of grisly torture and cold execution, are discovered in a life raft. With no witnesses, no motives, and no crime scene, Detective Kurt Wallander is frustrated and uncertain he has the ability to solve a case as mysterious as it is heinous. But after the victims are traced to the Baltic state of Latvia, a country gripped by the upheaval of Soviet disintegration, Major Liepa of the Riga police takes over the investigation. Thinking his work done, Wallander slips into routine once more, until suddenly, he is called to Riga and plunged into an alien world where shadows are everywhere, everything is watched, and old regimes will do anything to stay alive.

Journal Entry 10 by wingearthcaroleannewing at Falkirk, Scotland United Kingdom on Monday, December 11, 2017
Chronologically this is the second thriller by Henning Mankell about the detective Kurt Wallander, although it was the fifth one published in its English translation and I can see why they put it off. This one was a problem for me. I enjoyed the first half but when Wallander returned to Latvia without permission I was disappointed. That is the reason I stopped reading Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series as he kept disappearing and I couldn’t understand why he still had a job. At least Wallander applied for holidays. Unfortunately, after that, it stopped being a crime novel and turned into more of a Cold War spy thriller which is not really my thing. In all, it is not a bad read - until the rather ridiculous roof-top climax.
