I am in love with the entire Wallander series but I woud say that is suffers from too much grim Wallander and never plays up the other characters. They are only there to fetch information. But the writing is good. Not in love with the daughter novel but I am told the author will not write any more about her after the death of the Swedish actress who played her in the TV series. Hakan Nesser is a breath of fresh air. He has his flaws which make him human but he is smart and he is not hopelessly trapped in depressing habits like Wallander that overtake the police investigation.
For all his gloominess, there was something kind of sexy about Kurt. And, about Stieg, I really agree that the nasty prologue is a turnoff. I suppose the aim is to grab the reader right away, but I personally am not grabbed by scenes of torment. Your email address will not be published.

But the two victims lived very different lives, so the team has to begin the tedious and difficult task of linking each victim's pasts together, not only to identify the killer and the why, but to possibly warn anyone else connected with these two men. It's not a mystery, per se; the reader knows the who sort of from the very start. What drives the killer is what slowly unravels throughout the story, teased out a little at a time. As in all of his Van Veeteren books, Nesser's writing, his plotting genius and his characterizations all speak for themselves in this story.
He doesn't pad the writing with a lot of great detail and gets right to the crime and the search for a solution. Van Veeteren doesn't seem to suffer from the angst that many other Scandinavian detectives are full of and he has this very dry wit and sarcastic sense of humor. I've seen this book reviewed as being too slow with little punch, but trust me -- this is far from the case. If you want bang-bang shoot 'em up, look elsewhere. This one is much more subdued and cerebral.
I can definitely recommend this book to readers of Scandinavian crime fiction, and for those who want quality and intelligence in their crime. Here at Walmart.
