This is by far the best novel I've come across for a long time. The story-line is tightly-written and fast-paced; a real rollercoaster of a listen. Kurt Wallander's meticulous approach to the murders is painstaking and meticulous but very far from boring. His character is sympathetically drawn by Mankell, complete with his weakness and foibles, and includes a rather shockingly amusing habit he has (made me snigger, anyway!). Sean Barrett's voice is hypnotic, and conveys the ambience of both the country and the characters to perfection. I enjoyed 'Faceless Killers', but Mankell has outdone himself with 'One Step Behind', which borders at times on literary genius. I enjoyed it so much that when it finished I immediately started listening to it again.
I really hope Audible have plans to bring us more Wallender investigations in the very near future.

Just finished listening to this audiobook...'couldn't take the earphones out!' story totally compulsive, can't wait to download another book by MANKELL. The narrator has a brilliant and completely interesting way of putting the story across. I would class this book in the same league as the 'Dragon Tattoo Trilogy!'

An intricate and well crafted story read superbly by Sean Barrett who acutely depicts the work and personal strain experienced by Wallander, again emphasising the importance of the reader when selecting audible.
