Abstract:

When Kurt Wallander first appeared, he was a senior police officer, his life in a mess. His wife had left him, his father barely acknowledged him; he ate badly and drank alone at night. The Pyramid chronicles the events that led him to such a place. We see him in the early years, doing hours on the beat; witness the beginnings of his fragile relationship with Mona; and learn the reason behind his difficulties with his father. These thrilling tales provide a fascinating insight into Wallander's character. From the stabbing of a neighbour in 1969 to a light aircraft accident in 1989, every story is a vital piece of the Wallander series, showing Mankell at the top of his game.
