A short lost Wallander gem

Only a few hours long, this is a short Wallander story but contains all the usual ingredients, that Kurt fans have come to love; a curmudgeonly Kurt, a difficult procedural, an insightful resolution. It ended unexpectedly early however as the last chapter is an excellent autobiographical piece by Mankell, explaining the genesis of the story, and the difficulty of writing Kurt and particularly of tackling the dark areas of the human psyche that his subjects address. A good listen. And a great pity to think that there will be no more. Rest easy Henning Mankell.
