A propos de ce titre
Henning Mankell's Faceless Killers is at once a gripping mystery in the classic detective tradition and an incisive commentary on contemporary society. Early one morning, a small-town farmer makes the horrible discovery that his neighbors have been brutally attacked during the night. An old man is dead, and his wife's dying words provide the only clue to the mystery: "foreign." In charge of the investigation is Inspector Kurt Wallander, a local cop whose personal life is in a shambles. Things get complicated when he has to deal with an eruption of violent antiforeigner sentiment, as well as a tough-minded--and very attractive--female district attorney, as he searches for the killers.Review:
If you remember with pleasure those dark and gloomy Martin Beck mysteries by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo, you'll be glad to plunge into the first of Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallender mysteries to appear in English. Wallender's personal life can occasionally seem more depressing than even a provincial Swedish detective should be asked to bear, but his investigative skills are strictly first rate. And Mankell's story of the brutal murder of an elderly farm couple uncovers an unusual aspect of life in modern Sweden--a streak of fear and prejudice against the many newcomers from Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe who have sought asylum there.
