If you don't know anything about Henning Mankell, it's time to catch up. The works of this Swedish writer have been translated into forty languages and sold more than 30 million copies. The Troubled Man, his latest Kurt Wallander mystery, displays both his narrative powers and his gift of portrayal. On the surface, the story is simple: A retired naval officer disappears on his daily walk in a forest near Stockholm. Officially, Inspector Wallander has no part of the investigation, but the aging, irascible investigator thrusts himself into the hunt for a personal reason: The missing man is his daughter's future father-in-law. Haunted by his own memory losses and other problems, he wades ever deeper into a case which hints at Cold War espionage. A masterpiece.
