Review: Mörder ohne Gesicht
Mörder ohne Gesicht by Henning Mankell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Amazon Prime lend. Nice first one a series, but also too long.
The main story of the brutal murders of a married couple meanders along. The side stories where ok. real problems and real people.
One of the themes was the rise of racism, fueled by asylum-seekers.
Could have been less other side stories, to give a shorter book and a faster read.
Not too much romance, sex only hinted at, taking place off-page.
Recommended. For fans of Sweden and a different take on crime for US-readers, this being typical European problems. I read this in German translation, the english one may be different.
