From the dean of Scandinavian noir, the seventh riveting installment in the internationally bestselling and universally acclaimed Kurt Wallander series, the basis for the PBS series staring Kenneth Branagh.

A body is found at an ATM the apparent victim of heart attack. Then two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime showing no remorse whatsoever. Two open and shut cases. At first these two incidents seem to have nothing in common, but as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver he begins to unravel a plot much more involved complicated than he initially suspected. The two cases become one and lead to conspiracy that stretches to encompass a world larger than the borders of Sweden.

Great plot, great human Wallander. This book keeps you guessing, hoping, and wondering till the very end. We're far from the "super" cops of North American novels. Firewall shows real and human cops with all their fallities. A book you won't forget for quite a while

Kurt Wallander as a detective is a fresh breath in a stale, overpopulated, cliched genre. He is very unconventional and one does not necessarily need to like or empathize with the character in order to enjoy the story. The plots themselves are conjured out of nothing- a seemingly insignificant detail that blows out of proportions. But Mankell takes you on a decent ride and at the end you can't complain that you weren't entertained.
