It's not about Kennedy's Brain. It's about aids in Africa, and it's about a mother's search for the reason for her son's suspected suicide/murder. I've loved all of Henning Menkell's Swedish inspector series. This is darker and more unresolved. He has had personal experience with Africa and observing the impact of aids. So you figure he's trying to tell us the nasty truth of awful things that go on there between the covers of his fictional story. Would I recommend it? Only if you don't mind being dark for a while. Menkel's writing is still worth it.
