One Step Behind

I love reading mysteries with hard-boiled, troubled detectives. I just finished reading one of the Kurt Wallander mysteries. Kurt is a Swedish police detective and he battles with the changes in Swedish society. Crime is increasing and he feels inadequate, as do many of his department. In the start of this book, a murderer kills three young people when they are celebrating Midsummer by having a picnic. Everyone thinks they've gone off on a trip, but one parent is sure that there is something wrong, even though she's been receiving postcards from her daughter. When the bodies are revealed, Wallander and his team go after the killer who always seems to be both one step ahead of them and One Step Behind. I enjoy the character of Wallander and the look at Swedish society.
