We all know Stieg Larson, famous for the Millenium trilogy, but before Larson, there was Henning Mankell.  Here Mankell comes with his latest novel, the last of 11 featuring detective Kurt Wallander.

Wallander goes in a search of his daughter’s father in law, Captain Håkan von Enke, a former commander of the Swedish submarine force, obsessed with an incident from the 1980s involving the detection of Soviet submarines in Swedish waters.  Wallander’s digging into the commander’s life leads toward what appears to be a cold war scandal that could rock the current government.
