I generally don't like crime fiction, however I found this book to be very interesting. Kurt Wallander is a complex person, who is troubled from his past, and has an ability to see things other people don't. I liked the main theme of the book, economic fraud. I've seen it a lot when it comes to tv series, and in books it's even more interesting, and the depths of it is enormous.Overal, I enjoyed the book. If there is one thing I would criticize, it's the translator. There is a thousand mistakes in the book, like starting sentences with "ands" and "buts", making sentences too short and overly dramatic(although, that can be the original writers work).Looking away from that, it's a good book.
