I am a voracious reader with fairly eclectic taste. I like both fiction and non-fiction, biography, history and current events. I like well written mysteries and suspense and I love 19th and 20th century classical literature as well as modern fiction. My favorite author is Philip Roth but I also love Trollope, Hardy, Jonathan Franzen, Jane Austen and Edith Wharton. My favorite biographer is Robert Caro.

    It was a crime of senseless violence. On a cold night in a remote Swedish farmhouse, an elderly farmer was bludgeoned to death, his wife left to die with a noose around her neck. As if this didn't present enough problems for Ystad police inspector Kurt Wallander, the dying woman's last word, his only tangible clue, were foreign. If publicized, they could be the match that would inflame Sweden's already smoldering anti-immigrant sentiments.

    Overall

    This series was recommended by my stepmother, a big mystery fan who never steers me wrong. I found the mystery intelligent and well told, the story brought up many contemporary topics in a way a more serious novel would do. That aspect of the book is certainly one of the best things about it. THe narrator was good, not great, but his accents were convincing and his reading pace very nice. The characters were believable and the things that take place seem likely and convincing, while the author allows us to see what he thinks about many contemporary problems in Swedish society while constructing a good mystery. Intelligent and thoughtful, I enjoyed it and will definitely listen to more of this author's work.
