75 in ’13: The Dogs of Riga

I think I need a Xanax.

I think I need a Xanax.


For the fiftieth book in the challenge, I read The Dogs of Riga, by Henning Mankell (translated by Laurie Thompson), the second book in the Kurt Wallander series.

This time, our sensitive and seriously flawed homicide detective is dealing with a puzzle. Two bodies wash up in a rubber raft on the Swedish shore, shot execution-style and wearing very fancy suits. Clearly related to organized crime, these murders take a turn toward Latvia and a city where the only thing you can trust is that you can’t trust anyone, especially the police. But who cares if a couple of criminals are bumped off by other criminals? Wallander does.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
