9780099571728: The Man Who Smiled: Kurt Wallander

Spiralling into an alcohol-fuelled depression after killing a man in the line of duty, Inspector Kurt Wallander has made up his mind to quit the police force for good.

When an old acquaintance seeks Wallander's help to investigate the suspicious circumstances in which his father has died, Kurt doesn't want to know. But when his former friend turns up dead, shot three times, Wallander realises that he was wrong not to listen.

Against his better judgment, he returns to work to head what may now have become a double murder case. An enigmatic big-business tycoon seems to be the common denominator in the two deaths. But while Wallander is on the trail of the killer, somebody is on the trail of Wallander, and closing in fast...

Over 35 million copies of the Kurt Wallander series sold worldwide.

Review:

"One of his best" (The Times)

"Vintage Nordic storytelling" (Observer)

"Impeccable plotting" (Daily Express)

"Absorbing, chilling and dripping with evil atmosphere" (The Times)

"Rather in the way that Dire Straits were the Trojan horse that kickstarted the CD industry, Mankell's novels became the standard bearer for foreign crime in translation...the writer is a man of rare skills" (Barry Forshaw Daily Express)

From the Publisher:

A disillusioned Inspector Kurt Wallander is thrown back into the fray when he becomes both hunter and hunted in this adventure from the pen of Sweden's master of crime and mystery.
