1 Mankell, Henning Faceless Killers: A Mystery (Kurt Wallander Series #1)
New York, New York, U.S.A. The New Press 1997 156584341X / 9781565843417 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 284pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new; the original price (23.00) is intact. Translated from the Swedish by Steven T. Murray.

"...It was a senselessly violent crime: on a cold night in a remote Swedish farmhouse an elderly farmer is bludgeoned to death, and his wife is left to die with a noose around her neck. And as if this didn’t present enough problems for the Ystad police Inspector Kurt Wallander, the dying woman’s last word is foreign, leaving the police the one tangible clue they have -- and in the process, the match that could inflame Sweden’s already smoldering anti-immigrant sentiments. Unlike the situation with his ex-wife, his estranged daughter, or the beautiful but married young prosecuter who has peaked his interest, in this case, Wallander finds a problem he can handle. He quickly becomes obsessed with solving the crime before the already tense situation explodes, but soon comes to realize that it will require all his reserves of energy and dedication to solve..."

2 Mankell, Henning Sidetracked
London, United Kingdom Harvill Press 2000 1860467857 / 9781860467851 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Tall octavo. Black endpapers. 421pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new; the original price (16.99) is intact. Translated from the Swedish by Steven T. Murray.

"...Kurt Wallander is called to a nearby rapeseed field where a teenage girl has been loitering all day long. He arrives just in time to watch her douse herself in gasoline and set herself aflame. The next day he is called to a beach where Sweden’s former Minister of Justice has been axed to death and scalped. The murder has the obvious markings of a demented serial killer, and Wallander is frantic to find him before he strikes again. But his investigation is beset with a handful of obstacles -- a department distracted by the threat of impending cutbacks and the frivolity of World Cup soccer, a tenuous long-distance relationship with a murdered policeman’s widow, and the unshakably haunting preoccupation with the young girl who set herself on fire. Fascinating and astute, 'Sidetracked' is a compelling mystery enhanced by keen social awareness..."
