Review: The Fifth Woman

The Fifth Woman
The Fifth Woman by Henning Mankell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This novel in the Wallander series was a strange beast; there was more characterization and backstory about Wallander than we’ve really gotten before, and some pivotal life events happen to him, but the mystery itself was pretty misbegotten: Horrific murders once again linked to another country. I’m getting the feeling that Sweden thinks that most evil comes from the outside world and not their picturesque nation.

It’s getting harder and harder to be motivated to read the next book in this series, but I’ll keep soldiering on, since I enjoy Nordic detectives.
