I really liked these stories. I agree with the other reviewers who have noted that they provide the early history of Kurt Wallander. The story called "The Pyramid" is extraordinary. It reminded me of Fellini with the some of the images: his difficult and eccentric father and the latter's trip to Egypt necessitating Wallender to travel there to get him out of jail. Hard to explain unless you've read it, which I encourage you to do.

I get a little nervous when a collection of stories/novellas comes out from a novelist...especially if protaganist is a major character in said novelist's body of work. Usually. I worry that the stories will be froth, light entertainment. No worries with Mankell, these mysteries are just that, not short stories, they add to the already multi-dimensionality that is Kurt Wallandar, they provide background and depth. A great "listen" for the Wallandar fan...I know Mankell says he's done with the series but this is one case where I welcome prequels, sequels, intermidials...whatever I can get!
