Sidetracked (Kurt Wallander Series #5) by Henning Mankell

Inspector Kurt Wallander's long-anticipated vacation plans are interrupted by two horrific deaths: the self-immolation of an unidentified young woman and the brutal murder of the former minister of justice. As the police struggle to piece together the few clues they have, the killer strikes again and again. What connection is there between a retired minister of justice, a successful art dealer, and a common petty thief? Why does the killer scalp his victims? And could there be some connection between the young woman's death and the murders?

Like all the other books in the Wallander series, sidetracked is outstanding. It is impossible to put down once you start reading it. It has suspense, mystery and just when you think you have it figured out, guess what then it takes another turn !! I strongly recommend this book and any other books written by Henning Mankell, he is an exceptional writer that will keep you glued to his stories.

Great writing, outstanding plot with many unsuspected twists and turns. Dedicated Wallender gets more bumbling and forgetful as the series continues.
