THE TROUBLED MAN

Author: Henning Mankell
Harvill Secker $19,95
Review: Monique Mulligan
 
HAKAN von Enke is a man with a secret that dates back to Cold War.
When the troubled man goes missing just after his 75thbirthday, Detective Kurt Wallander is drawn to the case for reasons of his own.
His daughter, Linda, is living with von Enke’s son, Hans, and the couple has just had a baby. Weeks later von Enke’s wife, Louise, also disappears and Wallander is determined to find out the truth. But, while the case troubles him and reveals that friends can be strangers, Wallander has even deeper troubles of his own to deal with.
Brimming with politics, intrigue, conspiracy and spy theories, and tempered with the reality of ageing and relationships, The Troubled Man is a terrific contemporary crime novel that strengthens Mankell’s place at the top of the genre.
Just as Wallander is sure he’s missing something important at a number of points in the novel, the masterful plot keeps readers guessing until near the end.
Available from good bookstores and Random House.
