Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Sidetracked by Henning Mankell, read by Sean Barrett

Midsummer approaches, and 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. But his summer is ruined when a girl commits suicide before his eyes, and a former minister of justice is butchered in the first of a series of apparently motiveless murders.

Wallander's hunt for the girl's identity and his furious pursuit of a killer who scalps his victims will throw him and those he loves most into mortal danger.

Timeless

It was a joy to listen to this book. Terrific performance by Sean Barratt. And it amazed me how the themes and the thoughts in the book resonate so strongly still. Terrific book. Highly recommend.

Sidetracked Review

This is the fifth Henning Mankell book I have read and although I have enjoyed all the previous four this was for me the best one so far. First let me say the Narration was top notch from Sean Barrett he brings the characters alive with their idiosyncrasies and flaws while leaving enough for your imagination to fill in the gaps. The story for me was excellent and well-rounded, with excitement and plot developing while building on relationships and characters, linking to the previous books seamlessly. I am looking forwards to the next on, which I have already bought!!
