Henning Mankell


hen I finished reading The trouble Man, I was so so upset...All the bad moments I lived with my hubby's death came back to my mind...
And going back to the book I was so much in love with Kurt Wallander...
Strange how a character sometimes takes such a place in your life..I just not couldn't forgive Mankell for making him disappear that way, that was too much...
Then my son came back from England with "the man from Bejing"...a terribly complicated story, but the stories we love, fascinating...horrible murders ( how can we bear reading such things !!! I do wonder !!!!), the snow, the cold, the past the present....
and a quite nice woman, around my age: Birgitta Rosslin...She is a judge and she investigates about the famous murders...Some said she was a depressive woman...I don't agree, she's asking herself questions about the past, May 68, women's lib, politics, China...as most of us do...I mean women around 60...
She's great ! I do hope we'll meet her again in another book.

I also love Kurt Wallander. I like the TV series but I like the Swedish one best. He is such a gentleman. I've not read any of the books yet but want to try a Jo Nesbo. I've heard they're very good too.
