One Step Behind by Henning Mankell

One Step Behind is a Kurt Wallander mystery. Perhaps you’ve seen Kenneth Brannogh as “Wallander” on PBS playing the doggedly determined Swedish policeman. The action in this story takes place in and around the town of Ystad, Sweden. The setting contributes very importantly to the plot – a midsummer revel in a nature preserve to an attempted rescue among the islands off the Swedish coast. This is an excellent story, & also one that will pique your interest in Sweden.
