Henning Mankell is one of the best detective/crime writers I've come across. The writing is clean and he's a great storyteller while he captures the difficulties and the anxieties and difficulties of being a good cop maintaining some kind of real life.
I love this writers work. His use of language is compelling and does not weigh you down with to many words. The characters and the book are carved out of the coldness of Scandinavia. These characters are quite human and will stir your thoughts about you live life.
MY current favorite Mystery writer
