Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell
Faceless Killers

Ronile, September 11, 2011

This is the first of a series of well-written and well-plotted detective stories, that happen to be translated from the Swedish. The main character is so well depicted that I know him. What he goes though is the human condition (e.g. divorce, worrying about an elderly parent who is perhaps losing it, improving his relationship with his adult daugther, dealing with long, bleak, cold winters) while still solving complicated murders and relating to colleagues at work. I am currently reading the eighth mystery in the series and am as fascinated as ever. I highly recommend reading them in order because of Kurt Wallander's development.

My two year old grandson loves this book. He is of course familiiar with the song it comes from. The pictures are delightful, very colorful; she keeps getting bigger and bigger with every sea creature she swallows. It has a happier ending than the song.
