If you watch this gif while listening to the breakdown in “wake up” by Suicide Silence….strange things happen
Half way through this book. Mankell has a hell of a way weaving political issues onto a mystery. I feel like the African assassin’s description of the violence he took part in against a African girl sums up political oppression best. He said that at that moment the apartheid had succeeded; that the white people had been able to pit him against his own people. That parallel can be drawn so much in modern life as well.
I found the beginning of the book a bit slow, but once it hit its stride, it was really good. And even after solving the case, nothing on the noose, and poor Rydberg.
And poor Wallander. Mankell sure is depressing.
The tip of the goddamn Mankell iceberg…the fun never stops with Wallanders depressing trainwreck life…wait until he gets diabeeetuss
