Description
The winner of Glass Key and Golden Dagger awards, whose Kurt Wallander mysteries were adapted into a BBC/PBS television series starring Kenneth Branagh, Henning Mankell here presents what is expected to be the final episode for his brooding, iconic detective. When retired Swedish naval officer Håkan von Enke disappears, Wallander is compelled to investigate, both because the man had confided in him about an incident with a Soviet sub decades before, and because he is the future father-in-law of Wallander's daughter.

"It is a work of genuine heft and substance, a melancholy, elegiac book that is thoughtful and perceptive about memory, regret and the unfathomability of human nature.... Mankell has created in Wallander a shambling central character whose unconventional personality is at least as compelling as the crimes he investigates.... We can feel Mankell consciously saying goodbye to these people [from Wallander's past] and that he will regret not writing about them as much as we will miss reading about them. Which is more, really, than words can say."—LATimes

"Readers whose knowledge of Scandinavian crime fiction goes beyond Stieg Larsson know that it was Henning Mankell who jump-started what has developed into a 20-year golden age. Mankell's latest novel, the final volume in his Kurt Wallander series, represents a landmark moment in the genre comparable to the swan songs of Ian Rankin's John Rebus and John Harvey's Charlie Resnick.... Always a reticent man, Wallander shows an intensity of emotion here, a last gasp of felt life, that is both moving and oddly inspiring. An unforgettable series finale."—Booklist (starred review)
