Good but not my favorite
I am a big fan of Henning Mankell. I liked this story but it was not my favorite of his. The story is a typical Mankell crime story with seeming disparate events that are tied up in the end. The cast of characters continue to be well developed but for some reason I felt like the story was less cohesive than some of his others have been. I will continue to listen to his stories though and would encourage others to give him a try if they haven't already.

Great story, poorly read.
The story is worth the price of admission, even with the poor performance of the reader. A middle aged detective at the peak of his career comes off more like a tired, 65 year old police officer with Dick Hill's narration.
Nevertheless, the plot is fast paced and the story is riveting.
