    While tracking a demented serial killer, Detective Kurt Wallander is beset with obstacles: a department distracted by the threat of cutbacks and the frivolity of World Cup soccer, a tenuous relationship with a widow, and an unshakably haunting preoccupation with a girl who set herself on fire.

    Story

    This review could actually apply to any of the Wallander novels read by Dick Hill. First, I would say that, being a Brit, I tend to prefer a British narrator for British and non-US novels. It's not a prejudice, and it certainly doesn't always apply. It's just what I'm used to, I suppose.
    Dick Hill is exceptional. I have to say that sometimes I find his pronunciation a bit odd; for example, "calm" is pronounced to rhyme with "comb." However, that's a trivial point. His performance is outstanding. He reads at exactly the right pace, capturing the mood of the story and the idiosyncrasies of the characters without flaw. I look forward to more of his performances.
