This book is a departure from Mankell's Kurt Wallender series. It's worth reading. It's that rare book that doesn't seek to wrap everything up in a satisfactory ending, with good triumphing over evil. Many critical questions go unanswered, which stimulates thinking. An excellent book for conspiracy lovers, Mankell leads into two worlds: first, the mind of a fifty year old woman trying to investigate something both personal and global, and second, a fictional underworld of AIDS research in Africa that seems more plausible than not.

My only complaint about Mankell is his translator, who delivers a clunky and wooden translation, especially in the dialogue, interior and exterior.

Still, Mankell satisfies.
