    Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander books have sold over 35 million copies worldwide and have been propelled to even greater fame through the brilliant BBC adaptations starring Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hiddleston. This collection of our favourite three books in the series features the disillusioned inspector, impeccable plotting, chilling narratives and absorbing, gripping atmosphere.

    In The Man Who Smiled, Wallander finds himself spiralling into an alcohol-fuelled depression while investigating the unnervingly similar murders of a local businessman and his friend. Sidetracked sees Wallander on the trail of a sadistic serial killer who is preying on successful retirees; and Wallander unsuspectingly uncovers secrets of the Cold War while investigating the murder of his Swedish naval relative in The Troubled Man, the final Wallander novel.

    Fantastic reading for fans of the BBC crime series and for those who love page-turning thrillers (and particularly Nordic storytelling), this crime collection will have you spellbound from start to finish.

    This collection contains books 4, 5 and 11 in Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander series.
