is the long-awaited addition to Henning Mankell's critically celebrated and internationally best-selling Kurt Wallander mystery series - a book of five short mysteries that takes us back to the beginning. Here are the stories that trace, chronologically, Wallander's growth from a rookie cop into a young father and then a middle-aged divorcé, illuminating how Wallander became a first-rate detective and highlighting new facets of a now canonical character.
Kenneth Branagh will play Kurt Wallander in a new PBS Masterpiece Theatre Mystery! series this summer.
