Book Critique - An Event In Autumn

Stars: 3.5 / 5

Recommendation: A quick and easy read for anyone who wants to pick up murder mysteries but want to avoid the gorier and grittier parts.

An Event In Autumn is the 2014 translation of the 2004 Swedish novella Handen, originally written by Henning Mankell, translated by Lauire Thompson.

After watching both Swedish and British versions of Kurt Wallander TV Series (My review comparing both the series here), I always wanted to read the original books as well, of course the English translated ones since I don’t read or understand Swedish language. At a recent book sale when I came across this book I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to own it and then read it.

Henning Mankell had written 13 books keeping his favorite detective Kurt Wallander as the central focus and 1 book for Linda Wallander - Kurt's daughter. Kurt Wallander lives and works in Ystad, Sweden. He has a daughter Linda Wallander who also walks in his footsteps and becomes a police officer. Henning ends Kurt Wallander series with his protagonist developing Alzheimer's disease much like Kurt's father in the books. Sad ending for a distinguished officer.
