The Troubled Man

by Henning Mankell


I had read all the books in the Kurt Wallandar series, except this one – the final one. Coming back to him after such a long gap, I found it very easy to slip back into the old familiar setting. Although, I would recommend that you read the series and not try to read this as a stand-alone; there are references to Wallandar’s past. We meet also again his daughter, Linda, her partner and their daughter. The plot is interesting and well plotted – it all begins when Linda’s partner’s father does not return from his daily walk. In this novel, Mankell brings Wallandar’s reign to a close, there is no chance for a reprieve. Good bye, Kurt, and good luck.
