After a slow start and the need to change "parish council" to "local/shire council" in my mind ( ie not parish as in church) I became totally absorbed by the characters and insight into the politics and motivation of people living in a small community. No one is all good or all bad and this book is agreat reminder and insight into people.
OK, so I got hooked because I saw a TV series on Wallander, even saw the Fifth Woman and then up it came on an Audible list the next day. The book was a bit slow to start, but then, oh yes, a really good listen, so complex and compelling....and definitely so much better than the TV version - but then they had to condense it so much. I will look out for more Mankell books.
