The White Lioness

My wife and I are enjoying the detective novels by Swedish writer Henning Mankell. His hero, if he can be called that, is Kurt Wallander, a divorced, middle-aged, depressed detective in a small-town police department on the southern coast of Sweden. The constantly overcast weather darkens the moood of the principal characters and evokes a strong sense of place. My favorite so far is the 1993 The White Lioness.
