326pp. An as new copy in an attractive almost as new dj.. Translated by Laurie Thom" Mankell has done a marvelous job of placing us so close to Wallander that we experience the confusion and fear as he tries to unravel a mystery that takes him to Riga, Latvia as the Soviet system is imploding after 50 years. Like Wallander, we are always just a bit off balance, uncertain of where we are, what is happening, and why events are as they are. At the heart of the mystery is not so much an action or series of actions but an inability to sort friends and foes and the confusion and fear that permeate a disintegrating totalitarian state. It reminds me of Koestler's "Darkness at Noon," and in fact, one of the characters echoes a central theme of Darkness. ( Domestic Gnome - Amazon)
