I thought I had read all the Wallander books, so I was delighted to find there was another out there waiting for me. This one is as excellent as the rest. ( )

Like another recent book, I came to Henning Mankell's Firewall after having seen a film version of it. I can't recall this BBC production on Masterpiece Mystery too clearly, so the book still felt fresh to me. And, I'm sure it was adapted for filming, so the two versions would be somewhat divergent.

Overall, I liked the book. It was a fast read after the first few chapters, which felt a little too heavy on exposition. I was entertained and it was worth my time to read it. I'm glad to add another culture's police procedural to my reading list, having read American, British and Japanese ones in the past. While the genre must have things in common, each example brings something unique to the reader. So, I look forward to more books like this from Sweden and beyond.

On the negative side, I didn't care for some of the storytelling techniques that Mankell used. For example, he would be telling the story, moving forward in time, but then start a chapter as if its being told way in the future, looking back. He tells the reader that the upcoming scene is pivotal and has racked his main character Wallander's psyche for years to come. Then he switches back to the present and tells the story. I think it's a weak attempt at building suspense or grabbing the reader's attention. Then again, perhaps Mankell is trying to stop those readers who skip to the end to find things out and then reads from the beginning or middle. I'm not sure but I didn't like it. As for story, it's not too deep and it gets wrapped up rather quickly and too nicely at the end.

I also wasn't big on the weak development of the characters, especially the "Bad Guys." He paints them in broad stereotypes, e.g. the crafty Asian who has trouble speaking English and can't speak Swedish and techies who have poor to no social skills and interactions. He doesn't really develop his female characters, from Wallander's fellow officer Ann-Britt Höglund, to murderer/victim Sonja Hökberg, and to the various female characters scattered throughout the story.

I should probably read more of Mankell's works to see if this one book was an aberration or his normal style. I'd still recommend it to someone wanting a mystery/police procedural, but it's not in my favorites list. ( )

Another complex plot for Kurt Wallander to make his way through. It begins with a man falling dead at an ATM. Seemed like a heart attack. Shortly after, two teen girls attack a taxi driver viciously, yet seem to have no real motive - or remorse.

Leave it to Wallander to make a connection between the two cases, although it does take some time. The cases expand to include an international conspiracy, which is what Mankell seems to enjoy most, as it gives him an opportunity to alert his readers to real human rights abuses. Getting there involves asking for help from a local teen boy, who is known for his computer skills. (I was a bit disturbed by the way Wallander put the boy at risk.)

Again, Wallander makes an effort to meet women and does meet one. He hopes for the best. Again, I was mystified by what exactly he sees in the women he dates, other than that they are physically attractive. ( )

Ein Taxifahrer wird brutal von zwei jungen Mädchen ermordet, ein Mann bricht vor einem Geldautomaten tot zusammen, seine Leiche wird aus der Pathologie gestohlen, in einer Transformatorstation finden die Beamten eine verkohlte Leiche. Ein turbulenter Fall, in dem lange so wenig zueinander passen will. Die Ermittlungen führen von dem kleinen schwedischen Städtchen Ystad bis nach Angola, reichen von Mord bis zu einem perfiden Computerverbrechen von internationalem Format.

I wanted to quickly work this book in before Sunday's PBS Mystery presentation of this book. Of the Mankell books I have read, this is my 2nd fave, after One Step Behind. ( )
