22. Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell

The first Wallander book, but the third that I've read.

I loved this a lot more than the other two[1]; whether because it's shorter and more tightly plotted, or because it's a different translator (I checked - the Wallander books have been translated by different people in random order at random dates), I'm not sure.  I think the latter, because I really enjoyed the language and flow of this one.

It's heartening to read that a lot of Swedes hate winter as much as I do.

I will be moving the rest of the series up my list of priorities.

[1] For the record, The White Lionness and Firewall.

You are welcome to borrow any of the books I have that you haven't read. Let me know (check my book tags to see what I have).

I'm thinking about buying them, because I really like them. On the other hand I've got to stay good at not spending money and the library does have them all. I even got the new Ken Macleod from the library (but Jason bought it for his Kindle).
