    When Kurt Wallander first appeared in Faceless Killers back in 1990, he was a senior police officer, just turned 40, with his life in a mess. His wife had left him, his father barely acknowledged him; he ate badly and drank alone at night. The Pyramid chronicles the events that led him to such a place. We see him in the early years, doing hours on the beat whilst trying to solve a murder off-duty; witness the beginnings of his fragile relationship with Mona, the woman he has his heart set on marrying.

    In January 2014 I was informed that I had cancer. However, Quicksand is not a book about death and destruction but about what it means to be human. I have undertaken a journey from my childhood to the man I am today, writing about the key events in my life and about the people who have given me new perspectives. About men and women I have never met but wish I had. I write about love and jealousy, about courage and fear. And about what it is like to live with a potentially fatal illness.

    Wie die Jahre vergehen: Kurt Wallander lebt inzwischen auf dem Land, seine Tochter Linda ist verheiratet und hat ein Kind. Bei der Geburtstagsfeier ihres Schwiegervaters Håkan erfährt Wallander erstmals von dessen Zeit als Marineoberst. Als kurz darauf Håkan und seine Frau spurlos verschwinden, verstrickt sich Wallander in einen Fall, dessen Spuren bis in den Kalten Krieg zurückreichen. Wenn Tatort-Kommissar Axel Milberg liest, steigert er mit untrüglichem Gespür für Mankells subtile Dramatik die Spannung bis zum atemberaubenden Finale.

    Dagen då Joel ska fylla femton närmar sig med stormsteg. Snart är också skolan slut. Och vad ska han göra sen? Frågorna är många. Men Joel får uppleva just det som han alltid drömt om: han träffar sin mamma Jenny. En kväll går han ner till den frusna älven. Stjärnorna tindrar och han tycker sig se egendomliga märken efter hundtassar i snön. Spåren leder över älven, söderut, bort och förbi de ruvande granåsarna. Och då förstår Joel. Hunden som han en gång såg, den visade honom en väg. Och nu ska han följa den.
