Not everyone loves Kurt Wallander. If they did, he couldn’t be the dour, melancholy character that has attracted so many mystery fans. Although critics felt the book was a standout in the series, they also warned against it too. It’s one of the best, they said, but readers won’t truly appreciate it unless they have thoroughly come to know this curmudgeonly gumshoe. As the purported last in the series, The Troubled Man offers up some surprises about Wallander’s life and aging process, but his evolution takes place over the ten books. Though a significant installment and fitting end to the series, critics recommend readers intrigued by the phenomenon start with the first in the series, Faceless Killers (1991). This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
