A man stops at an ATM and suddenly falls dead to the ground. A blackout cuts power to a large swath of southern Sweden. When a serviceman arrives at the malfunctioning power substation, he makes a grisly discovery. Inspector Kurt Wallander begins to sense a connection between all of these events and, at the same time, becomes increasingly aware of the vulnerability of a digitized society.

Great plot, great human Wallander. This book keeps you guessing, hoping, and wondering till the very end. We're far from the "super" cops of North American novels. Firewall shows real and human cops with all their fallities. A book you won't forget for quite a while

Kurt Wallander as a detective is a fresh breath in a stale, overpopulated, cliched genre. He is very unconventional and one does not necessarily need to like or empathize with the character in order to enjoy the story. The plots themselves are conjured out of nothing- a seemingly insignificant detail that blows out of proportions. But Mankell takes you on a decent ride and at the end you can't complain that you weren't entertained.
