The Pyramid
fullDescription

This collection of five stories traces the growth of Swedish Inspector Kurt Wallander into a first-rate detective, from rookie cop to young father to middle-aged divorcé, illuminating new facets of a now-canonical character.

In "Wallander's First Case," the twenty-one-year-old patrolman's first homicide case involves his next-door neighbor, seemingly dead by his own hand. Wallander is a young father confronting an unexpected threat on Christmas Eve in "The Man with the Mask." In "The Man on the Beach," he is on the brink of middle age and troubled by a distant wife as he unravels why a lonely man was poisoned. Newly separated in "The Death of the Photographer," he investigates the murder of the local photographer and discovers some well concealed secrets. In "The Pyramid" he is the veteran detective uncovering connections between a downed plane and the assassination of two elderly sisters. Over the course of these five stories, Wallander comes into his own as a murder detective, defined by his simultaneously methodical and instinctive work, even as he finds himself increasingly haunted from witnessing the worst aspects of an atomized society.

Written from the unique perspective of an author looking back upon his own creation to discover his origins, these mysteries are vintage Mankell and essential reading for all Wallander fans. The Pyramid is a wonderful display of Mankell's virtuosic powers as an acknowledged master of the police procedural.

      • content: Once again, Dick Hill uses his terrific understated style to bring the gloomy and self-doubting police detective Kurt Wallander to life. Hill's effective timing always matches the action (Wallander in danger!), the emotion (Wallander's depression about the state of Swedish society) and even the geography (rainy and bleak). In THE PYRAMID, Henning Mankell goes back in time with five stories that precede the series. We begin with Wallander's first case as a 21-year-old patrol officer investigating the stabbing of his neighbor on his own time while wooing girlfriend Mona (his ex-wife in all the Wallander novels). The stories end in the late 1980s as the veteran detective finds connections between a plane crash and the execution-style deaths of two elderly shopkeepers. As always, it's a treat to spend several hours with Mankell, Wallander, and Hill. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from July 28, 2008
        The five stories in this outstanding collection from Mankell (Faceless Killers
        ) provide glimpses into Kurt Wallander's early life as a policeman as well as paint evocative portraits of contemporary Swedish society. An unremarkable businessman is poisoned in “The Man on the Beach” but—in typical Mankell fashion—the case is larger, more complex and more interesting than it first appears. In the volume's best entry, “The Death of the Photographer,” Simon Lamberg takes studio portraits of weddings and children, but a couple of nights each week, he uses his darkroom to distort published photographs of politicians and newsworthy people for a macabre personal scrapbook. It's a bizarre hobby, but the cause of Lamberg's brutal, apparently senseless death is an even stranger puzzle. Like the Wallander novels, these stories rank among the finest police procedurals being written today.
