When Kurt Wallander first appeared in Faceless Killers, he was a
senior police officer, just turned forty, 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; and learn the reason behind his
difficulties with his father. These thrilling tales provide a
fascinating insight into Wallander's character, from the stabbing
of a neighbour in 1969 to a light aircraft accident in 1989, every
story is a vital piece of the Wallander series, showing Mankell at
the top of his game. Featuring an introduction from the author, The
Pyramid is an essential read for all fans of Kurt Wallander.
