really liked it

Couldn't put it down! Luckily, we're in Maine....I had seen the dramatization of this book on Masterpiece Mystery, but that made it even more fun to appreciate the foreshadowing. This mystery is carefully enough constructed that you _can_ figure out some things before the characters. I also appreciated the every-day office politics of the team and the existential struggles of the detective, though these concerns may be too mid-life for some of my Good Reads friends. And of course, with Elizabeth going to Sweden next week (!) I greatly enjoyed the depictions of Swedish locales and glimpses into Swedish society and life ways. This is my first Wallander, all the rest will be on my "to read" list soon.
