llp’s CBR III Review 24: The Pyramid by Henning Mankell

Years ago I read Mankell’s The Return of the Dancing Master (not a Wallander mystery) and found it enormously dark and well written. I have recently watched the excellent Wallander television series, starring Kenneth Branagh with support from the delightful Tom Hiddleston, and subsequently picked up the only Mankell book left on the library shelves. The Pyramid is a collection of short stories about Wallander’s early years, from about age 21 until his mid-forties – it is a good book and would likely be a good introduction to the Wallander mysteries.
