Now available for the first time in paperback from Vintage Canada, this international bestseller is the missing piece of the critically acclaimed Kurt Wallander mystery series: the story of Wallander’s beginnings.
The Pyramid is the prequel to the bestselling Kurt Wallander series, and reintroduces readers to a character they thought they knew everything about. Here, we see Wallander as a twenty-one-year-old patrolman, as a young father facing an unexpected danger on Christmas Eve, as a budding detective on the brink of middle age solving a case of poisoning, as an investigator solving the murder of a local photographer, and finally as a veteran detective discovering unexpected connections between a downed mystery plane and the assassination of a pair of spinster sisters. Watching this fascinating character come into his own and develop his signature methodical and instinctive work style, makes for riveting reading.
The Pyramid is vintage Mankell, and a must-have for his many fans.
