Well, tak tak for your mention of the "Swedish question", which reminded me that I haven't written a word yet about the excellent Henning Mankell. Best wishes, Jim

You're welcome. I've mentioned Mankell only in passing, since my reading of him predates this blog. Two of his novels stick out for me: The Dogs of Riga for its lowdown and gritty view of investigation and Firewall for its blend of small-city police procedural and international thriller.

I also attended a reading by Mankell once. He's a pretty humorous guy and eager to answer questions about his work. And Håkan Nesser regards him as the precursor of and door-opener for the current wave of Swedish crime writers.
