Faceless Killers is the first in Mankell's series featuring Swedish police detective Kurt Wallender. It is clear - and Mankell acknowledges it - that his crime novels owe a great debt to those of Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo that came a generation before, but Mankell carries on the tradition of Swedish crime admirably. If you've seen the TV miniseries "Wallender" you'll remember the bleak Swedish landscapes that, I think, accurately capture the mood of the books.
