FIREWALL by Henning Mankell
Released: Nov. 1, 2002

"Though the case is as overstuffed as you'd expect from exhaustive Mankell (The Fifth Woman, 2000, etc), resolute Wallander, lonely, unhappy, even at times desperate, is as magnetic as ever."
Despite 30 years of down-and-dirty police work, there are some things Swedish Chief Inspector Kurt Wallander's never seen, and he finds the murder of an Ystad cab driver by two middle-class girls, one barely a teenager, impossible to accept, depressing enough to generate first-time thoughts of quitting.

ONE STEP BEHIND by Henning Mankell
Released: Feb. 28, 2002

"Maigret lives in this brilliant police procedural, the best of Wallander's adventures to date."
