    There was a point in The Fifth Woman where I thought, Christ, Wallander is getting preachy I wonder if Mankell realizes it And then a couple of chapters later it came clear that Mankell did realize what was happening to his Ystad Detective because those closest to Wallander comment on his fondness for lecturing everyone around him about the ills of Sweden and his philosophy of police work They then prod him to become a lecturer at the local police academy A literary snap of the fingers and There was a point in The Fifth Woman where I thought, Christ, Wallander is getting preachy I wonder if Mankell realizes it And then a couple of chapters later it came clear that Mankell did realize what was happening to his Ystad Detective because those closest to Wallander comment on his fondness for lecturing everyone around him about the ills of Sweden and his philosophy of police work They then prod him to become a lecturer at the local police academy A literary snap of the fingers and Mankel...

    These hold depth of characters, especially Wallander and his workmates Often times his Dad or Linda, his daughter, are studied And this one like most of the others has a distinct perp not just a facade of evil but we get depths of the thoughts and perceptions for the crimes It s appreciated that they are not just cartoon bad guys or simple heroes Neither.Yet I find all of these overlong with the Swedish disaffection and superfluous information of placings and situations for procedure And These hold depth of characters, especially Wallander and his workmates Often times his Dad or Linda, his daughter, are studied And this one like most of the others has a distinct perp not just a facade of evil but we get depths of the thoughts and perceptions for the crimes It s appreciated that they are not just cartoon bad guys or simple heroes Neither.Yet I find all of these overlong with the Swedish disaffection and superfluous information of placings and situations for procedure And it all continually morose and of course, closely fatalistic So it becomes after the first half, oftentimes a tedious reading experience Especially, as in this one, when you have guessed most of the onus for the crime and who is initiating This Fifth Woman also holds some horrific torture and cruel lingering physical injury toward death done purposely with revenge an aspect So it became off putting in the copy of th...

    It is definitely a page turner but not as good as previous Wallender novels The seemingly endless philosophizing about the ills of Swedish society and how everything is expensive could have been omitted I did like how he said Swedish society was failing because no one could darn socks and then he is sitting beside someone on a plane darning a sock That was amusing The plot of a serial killing woman is good and the suspense kept up throughout The gruesome murders of deserving victims is imag It is definitely a page turner but not as good as previous Wallender novels The seemingly endless philosophizing about the ills of Swedish society and how everything is expensive could have been omitted I did like how he said Swedish society was failing becaus...
