My interest was piqued when I read on the audible just released lists about Swedish author Henning Mankell. I read the publisher's summary and thought they looked interesting. I'd never read a Swedish author before, that I know of anyway, and thought why not give it a try. I've always found the Baltic history intriguing so decided to give Dogs of Riga a try as my first one. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and getting to know Kurt Wallander. It was a fun listen with with plenty of plot twists and turns. Henning writes a good story. I enjoyed hearing the descriptions of life in both Sweden and Latvia. You wonder sometimes what the citizens of both countries think about life there and it appears to have its challenges. I will look forward to listening to the other Mankell books on Audible.

Any additional comments?
I greatly enjoyed The Dogs of Riga. Having given Dick Hill a negative review for his reading of the first book in the Wallander series, I was pleased that he had settled into a more appropriate style than in Faceless Killers. The story is intriguing with a fast pace and an unusually well handled sense of place. Highly recommended for fans of top-quality mysteries.
