    Every morning Håkan von Enke takes a walk in the forest near his apartment in Stockholm. However, one winter’s day he fails to come home. It seems that he has vanished without trace. Detective Kurt Wallander is not officially involved in the investigation but he has personal reasons for his interest in the case, as Håkan’s son is engaged to his daughter.... The return of Kurt Wallander, for his final case, confirms Henning Mankell’s position as the king of crime writing.

    Lia says: "Another Great Mystery"
    "A meditation on life as well as a spy story"
    Overall

    It seems a satisfying tradition of Scandinavian detective stories that both the human condition and the individual psyche are examined in them. In the Troubled Man, the plot concerns a disappearance of two people that seems linked to spying dating back to the Cold War. Increasingly emerging from the background is Wallander's attempts to understand what is happening in his body and brain as he ages. He also reflects on the events of his past life and the continuing, in fact growing sadness associated with them. The result is a disquieting meditation on ageing and the fears it evokes within us as well as Henning Mankell's usual compelling storytelling. I find myself continuing to think about this story long after listening to it. The narrator does it full justice.
