Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell

My third book for June is Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell. Flying back from Burbank, I finished the book that I was reading. Looking in the Kindle app, I saw that I had downloaded this book in March. Somewhat disturbingly, I am not sure why I downloaded the book. Looking for new and different books, I am constantly talking to people about what they are reading. Someone must have recommended it to me (Tom?), but frankly I have no recollection of who...

Faceless Killers (Swedish: Mördare utan ansikte) is a 1991 crime novel by the Swedish writer Henning Mankell. It is the first in his acclaimed Wallander series. In 1992, Faceless Killers won the first ever Glass Key award; it is given to crime writers from the Nordic countries. The story focuses on Sweden's liberal attitude regarding immigration, and explores themes of racism and national identity.

It was a nice quick read between weighier projects like the Johnson biographies. I give it a solid "B" and recommend the book. I will definitely read the next book in the series!
