I could not put this book down, as with the other Wallander books. I liked the idea that the situations in other countries are involved in the story. It put a personal perspective on the situation in South Africe when apartheid was crumbling. I did not find it unreasonable that Sweden was the country being used to train an assassin. I am sure that this was more fact than fiction. I first read The Fifth Woman, then decided to go back and read the first book in the series. In the Pyramid: and Four Other Kurt Wallander..., though written later, the author goes back to Kurt Wallander's beginning in the police force, his relationship with his father, his marriage and the birth of his daughter. A running theme is his fear for what the future will bring to Sweden. I recommend anyone interested in these books to start with The Pyramid...
