Last Wallander book


An Event in Autumn

After reading the entire series of 10 Wallander novels, it was a joy to discover this previously unpublished story released as a novella by Henning Mankell.

I've talked about this in a previous blog michaelbraccia.wix.com/author-blog

Kurt Wallander views a house owned by a relative of a fellow officer. He discovers something in the garden that makes it impossible for him to buy the house, even though he has made a tentative offer. A second gruesome discovery is made, and Kurt is forced to delve into records dating back to the second world war. His dream of moving out of his flat and into a nice house in the country will have to wait...

Henning Mankell writes an Afterword in which he describes Wallander and how he created the character. He concludes by saying 'my story about Kurt Wallander has now come to an end'.

There will be no more Wallander stories.
