The Troubled Man Henning Mankell & Laurie Thompson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The tenth riveting installment in the mystery thriller series that inspired the Netflix crime drama Young Wallander

"As satisfying for its emotional depth as its suspense . . . A gripping mystery.” —PEOPLE Magazine


A retired navy officer has vanished in a forest near Stockholm. Kurt Wallander is prepared to stay out of the relatively straightforward investigation—which is, after all, another detective’s responsibility—but the missing man is his daughter’s father-in-law.
 
With his typical disregard for rules and regulations, Wallander is soon pursuing his own brand of dogged detective work on someone else’s case. His methods are often questionable, but the results are not: he finds an extremely complex situation which may involve the secret police and ties back to Cold War espionage. Adding to Wallander’s concerns are more personal troubles. Having turned sixty, and having long neglected his health, he’s become convinced that his memory is failing. As he pursues this baffling case, he must come to grips not only with the facts at hand, but also with his own troubling situation.

    Good read. At times, I thought the story wandered a bit and was longer than needed to be. I did enjoy the central theme while sharing with Wallander the inevitability of growing older. A prospect that may frighten many of us as we approach the final stages of life.
  • Best of the series
