An Event in Autumn product reviews

Some cases aren't as cold as you'd think

Kurt Wallander's life looks like it has taken a turn for the better when his offer on a new house is accepted, only for him to uncover something unexpected in the garden - the skeleton of a middle-aged woman.

As police officers comb the property, Wallander attempts to get his new life back on course by finding the woman's killer with the aid of his daughter, Linda. But when another discovery is made in the garden, Wallander is forced to delve further back into the area's past.

A treat for fans and new readers alike, this is a never before published Kurt Wallander novella

I haven't read any of Henning Mankell's previous Kurt Wallander mysteries but having reviewed The Shadow Girls thought it would be interesting to read a different genre by Mankell.

This is a short story indeed a novella rather than a long novel. It is however all the better for it. I really enjoyed reading this. It is a very quick mystery read and a very enjoyable one at that. I especially enjoyed the afterword and the accompanying essay on the Wallander stories. My interest is piqued to such an extent that I may try and read the entire series chronologically and also intend to read more of Mankells works. If you are already a Wallander fan then this book will, of course, be a must for you to read and I imagine that any true fan will very much enjoy the essay at the end. I am a very loyal fan of authors that choose to share a little about the life behind their works. For me understanding the authors thought processes in bringing character's alive on the written page creates a unique depth to their final works and to my enjoyment and understanding of them.

This is a very well written mystery that is very easy to read and indeed very engaging. Perfect for Fathers Day or as a birthday or Christmas gift this is a book that will very much appeal to any fan of crime novels and mystery.
