He can hardly I began reading Sidetracked after we had started watching the British television productions of Mankell's Wallander books, with which I immediately connected. Mankell touches on human trafficking but it doesn't overwhelm the book like his forays into other social ills have done in previous books.

Sidetracked (Kurt Wallander)

Midsummer approaches, and Inspector Kurt Wallander prepares for a holiday with the new woman in his life, hopeful that his wayward daughter and his ageing father will cope without him. Detective Kurt Wallander is called to a nearby rapeseed field where a teenage girl has been loitering all day long. I think I finished it in less than twenty-four hours. Numerous examples of this occur throughout the novel, and we might even say that the entire novel is a stitching of character traits against horrific events. The killings are the carrot leading Kurt by the nose: but the reality, Mankell tells us, is that life interrupts. Η σχέση του με την κόρη του Λίντα, με το πατέρα του που είναι στα πρόθυρα Άλτσαχαϊμερ και ετοιμάζονται για το ταξίδι στην Ιταλία και τη σχέση του με την Μπάιμπα από τη Ρίγα και το προγραμματισμένο ταξίδι διακοπών τους που απειλείται να αναβληθεί λόγω της υπόθεσης που καθυστερεί να λυθεί.

In addition, a grisly sucide of a young teenager from the Domenican Republis at the start of the book sets the grim tone of the book. Wallander is a skilled detective but less skilled at managing his life. The riddle that the author gives us in the first book is a very difficult one. There's just one problem with that.
