    Chậm một bước

    [​IMG]

    “Chậm một bước” - cuốn sách được dựng thành phim năm 2005 của tác giả Henning Mankell nằm trong loạt truyện trinh thám xoay quanh nhân vật chính thanh tra Kurt Wallander được dịch giả Cao Việt Dũng dịch ra tiếng Việt đã có mặt trên các hiệu sách toàn quốc.

    Loạt truyện trinh thám này của Henning Mankell được xuất bản tại hơn ba mươi quốc gia, thuộc hàng những cuốn sách bán chạy nhất của Châu Âu với nhiều giải thưởng văn học trinh thám có uy tín: Giải thưởng của hiệp hội tác giả văn học trinh thám Thụy Điển và Giải Glass Key của các hiệp hội văn học trinh thám Bắc Âu cho Faceless Killers, Giải Golden Dagger 2001 do hiệp hội các tác giả văn học trinh thám Anh và Giải thưởng của hiệp hội tác giả văn học trinh thám Thụy Điển 1995 cho Sidetracked.
    “Chậm một bước” mang tới cho người đọc một hình mẫu nhà trinh thám không hạnh phúc trong hôn nhân, sống cô đơn trong căn hộ giản dị, luôn phải tìm cách chống chọi lại với những căn bệnh và nguy cơ dư thừa cân nặng.

    Thanh tra Kurt Wallander dường như không thể thoát khỏi sự mệt mỏi dai dẳng đeo bám, cho dù ông đã có một kỳ nghỉ yên bình bên cô con gái. Bất cứ lúc nào vị thanh tra khả kính cũng có thể rơi vào trạng thái lơ mơ ngủ và bị cơn khát thiêu đốt cổ họng đeo bám – những triệu chứng rõ ràng của bệnh tiểu đường. Nhưng khi chưa kịp lên kế hoạch cho việc trị liệu, ông liền nhận được thông báo về ba người thanh niên đã biến mất một cách bí ẩn trong bữa tiệc ngày hè.

    Đã có gì xảy ra với họ hay đơn thuần đó chỉ là một trò đùa? Câu hỏi còn chưa có lời đáp, Wallander lập tức bị cuốn vào một vụ án mạng đau lòng: Svedberg - người đồng nghiệp lâu năm của ông bị bắn chết ngay tại nhà mình. Và rồi, khi Kurt Wallander phát hiện ra nơi giấu đồ bí mật của người đồng nghiệp bị sát hại, ông kinh ngạc nhận thấy tấm ảnh của ba thanh niên mất tích có ở đó. Hai vụ án có một mối liên hệ bí mật, liệu có phải Svedberg đã phát hiện ra một điều gì? Những điều kinh hoàng liệu đã kết thúc?... Nỗi day dứt đeo đuổi người thanh tra, khiến ông càng nóng lòng tìm ra kẻ giết người. Nhưng dường như lần nào, Wallender cũng chậm một bước.

    Điểm khác biệt của Henning Mankell với nhiều tác giả trinh thám đó là ông không xây dựng nhân vật chính của mình thành một người hùng quá mạnh mẽ. Và ngay từ những dòng văn đầu tiên đã để cho kẻ giết người xuất hiện. Hắn vô danh, nhưng người đọc có thể hình dung ra hắn, cảm nhận được mùi chết chóc đáng sợ toả ra từ hắn.

    Không giản đơn là một câu chuyện giải trí đơn thuần, “Chậm một bước” do Nhà sách Nhã Nam phát hành, với độ dày đáng nể, mở ra trước mắt người đọc thế giới nội tâm sâu thẳm của nhân vật cũng như những suy nghĩ về cuộc sống, về con người ẩn sau mỗi vụ án.

    [​IMG]

    It is October 1914: the destroyer Svea emerged from the Stockholm archipelago bearing south-south-east. On board was Lars Tobiasson-Svartman, a naval engineer charged with making depth soundings to find a navigable channel for the Swedish navy. As a child Tobiasson-Svartman was fascinated by measurement; nothing is as magical as exact knowledge. His instinct for his profession is reflected in the comfortable domesticity he enjoys with his wife - herself meticulous in every detail. Close to the waters where soundings are taken Tobiasson-Svartman alights on a barren skerry, presumed uninhabited, and is surprised to discover there a young woman, Sara Fredrika. Despite her almost feral appearance, something about her strikes him to the core. The mission is a success and the Svea returns to Gothenburg. Tobiasson-Svartman, however, remains haunted by this chance encounter; his equilibrium has been disturbed, and he is now compelled to find any pretence to return to the remote islet. In "Depths", Mankell confirms his status as a writer beyond the crime genre. By delving deep into the male psyche, he has produced a novel both as tense and compelling in every way as the "Wallander" series, but also powerful, moving and ultimately tragic.

Featuring a new cast of characters this novel marks the end of the Kurt Wallander Mysteries and prepares the way for many more mysteries to come.

Early one morning shots shatter Molin's window...by the time his body is found it is almost unrecognisable. Stefan Lindman is another off-the-job police officer. On extended sick leave due to having cancer of the tongue Lindman hears about the murder of his former colleague and, in a bid to take his mind off his own problems, decides to investigate. As his investigation becomes increasingly complex it is with both horror and disbelief that Lindman uncovers links to a global web of neo-Nazi activity.

Linda Wallander, preparing to join the Ystad police force, arrives at the station. Showing all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper - she becomes involved in the case and in the process has to confront a group of extremists bent on punishing the world's sinners. Before the Frost is a totally compelling and atmospheric crime story.

    The Eye of the Leopard
    (2007)
    Henning Mankell

    [​IMG]

    Hans Olofson is the son of a Swedish lumberjack. His childhood was unsettled: an alcoholic father, and a mother disappeared, only alive in old photographs. His adolescence was no easier as he lost both his best friend and his lover tragically. Alone and adrift, as a young man his only desire is to fulfil his lover's dream and visit the grave of a legendary missionary who survived alone in the remote hills of Northern Zambia. On reaching Africa, Olofson is struck by its beauty and mystery. After fulfilling his initial quest, an opportunity of employment in the region tempts him to stay. Time passes quickly. Though dismayed by the attitude of the white population to their adopted country, which is compounded by their vulnerability to alcohol and malaria, he is interested enough to take up sole responsibility for the farm he manages.For almost two decades Hans Olofson battles with a hostile environment and a placid, but resistant workforce. Set in the 1970s and 1980s, "The Eye of the Leopard" explores the relationship between the white farmers and their native workers.

    Through Olofson's descent into near mental collapse it becomes clear that many years spent in a foreign land do not necessarily breed an understanding of its people: a handful of generations of white settlers cannot change a continent underpinned by myth and superstition. "The Eye of the Leopard" is a first-rate and original psychological thriller delving deep into the mind of a man lost in an unknown world.

    When the Snow Fell
    (2007)
    (The third book in the Joel Gustafson series)
    Henning Mankell

    [​IMG]

    Joel is growing up. He is getting interested in girls. Just look at his New Year's resolutions: 1 — to see a naked lady; 2 — to toughen himself up so that he can live to be a hundred; and 3 — to see the sea. They all look pretty impossible for a motherless boy in Northern Sweden. Especially as his sailor dad is keen to drown his sadness in drink, and all the local matrons are narrowly watching the pair of them.

    And then he saves old Simon from a frozen death in the woods, and Joel becomes a local hero.

    This is the third title in the popular series of children's books from this master storyteller. The two previous ones are A Bridge to the Stars and Shadows in the Twilight.

    The Pyramid
    (2008)
    (The ninth book in the Kurt Wallander series)
    Henning Mankell

    [​IMG]

    The missing piece of the internationally bestselling Kurt Wallander mystery series: the story of Wallander's beginnings, told in five gripping short mysteries.

    "What happened to Wallander before the series began?...Several years ago, right when I was done with the fifth book, Sidetracked, I realized that I had started to write stories in my head that took place long before the start of the series."

    From Henning Mankell's foreword​

    At last, a key addition to the Kurt Wallander mystery series: the book of short mysteries that takes us back to the beginning. Here we meet Wallander the twenty-one-year-old patrolman on his first criminal investigation, Wallander the young father facing an unexpected danger on Christmas Eve, Wallander on the brink of middle age solving a case of poisoning, the newly separated Wallander investigating the murder of a local photographer, and Wallander the veteran detective discovering unexpected connections between a downed mystery plane and the assassination of a pair of spinster sisters. Over the course of these five mysteries, he comes into his own as a murder detective, defined by his simultaneously methodical and instinctive work, and is increasingly haunted from witnessing the worst aspects of an atomized society.

    Written from the unique perspective of an author looking back upon his own creation to discover his origins, these mysteries are vintage Mankell. Essential reading for all Wallander fans, The Pyramid is also a wonderful showcase for Mankell's powers as a writer.

    The Man from Beijing
    (2010)
    Henning Mankell

    [​IMG]

    The acclaimed author of the Kurt Wallander mysteries now gives us an electrifying stand-alone thriller that takes off into a sweeping international drama.

    January 2006. In the Swedish hamlet of Hesjövallen, nineteen people have been massacred. The only clue is a red ribbon found at the scene. Judge Birgitta Roslin has particular reason to be shocked: her grandparents, the Andréns, are among the victims. The police insist that only a lunatic could have committed the murders. But when Birgitta discovers the diary of another Andrén - a gang master on the American transcontinental railway in the nineteenth century - that describes the cruel treatment of Chinese slave-workers, she is determined to uncover what she suspects is a more complicated truth.

    The investigation leads to modern-day Beijing and its highest echelons of power, to Zimbabwe and Mozambique. But the narrative also takes us back 150 years, into a history that will ensnare Birgitta as she draws ever closer to solving the Hesjövallen murders.

    This is Henning Mankell at the height of his powers.

    The fifth woman
    [​IMG]
    The fourth book in Mankell's excellent series opens with the bloody killings of four nuns and a Swedish tourist (the fifth woman) in Algeria, then switches to the carefully staged murder of a wealthy retired car dealer in Ystad, Sweden. Even as Inspector Kurt Wallander and his cohorts tirelessly work the car-dealer case, the perpetrator obsessively plots her next murder, dispatching the victim as if all her life were meant for this killing moment. Wallander somehow uncovers the ties that bind these apparently disparate events together. The intricate plotting, chilling psychological divination, and thrilling police procedural are all seamlessly translated. Fans of Maj Sj wall and Per Wahl 's mysteries will enjoy this crime novel by their fellow countryman. Highly recommended.

    [​IMG]

    Told from the perspectives of both cop and criminal, Mankell's third Kurt Wallander mystery revolves around the veteran Swedish inspector's search for a savage serial killer who scalps his victims after delivering a fatal hatchet blow. The novel opens as Wallander is called to a farmer's field, where he helplessly witnesses a teenage girl's self-immolation. The suicide unsettles the inspector, who can't understand why someone so young would kill herself. As the police try to identify the young woman, the serial killer's first victim, a former justice minister, is discovered on a beach in a wealthy neighborhood. Three more people are found murdered and scalped, and other signs of violence suggest that the perpetrator is becoming increasingly agitated. Following standard procedure, Wallander and his crew try to link the four victims, all male, a difficult task because their lives never seem to have intersected. Using American profiling methods as well as his own intuition, Wallander struggles to make headway in the case. What he doesn't consider, and what readers know, is that the murderer isn't a man but a boy, who hopes to revive his catatonic sister by the ritual presentation of the scalps. Mankell's meticulously detailed descriptions of the inspector's investigationAand his often lyrical portrayal of Wallander's struggle to rearrange his thought processes in order to catch the criminalAare masterful. The author's treatment of modern themes such as juvenile killers and broken families adds richness to what is essentially a straightforward police procedural. But above all, the novel stands out for its nuanced evocation of even the peripheral characters. Winner of Sweden's 1997 Best Crime Novel of the Year, this is another terrific offering from the talented Mankell.

    The Troubled Man (29 March 2011)

    [​IMG]

    Kurt Wallander series - book 11​

    The much-anticipated return of Henning Mankell’s brilliant, brooding detective, Kurt Wallander.

    On a winter day in 2008, Håkan von Enke, a retired high-ranking naval officer, vanishes during his daily walk in a forest near Stockholm. The investigation into his disappearance falls under the jurisdiction of the Stockholm police. It has nothing to do with Wallander—officially. But von Enke is his daughter’s future father-in-law. And so, with his inimitable disregard for normal procedure, Wallander is soon interfering in matters that are not his responsibility, making promises he won’t keep, telling lies when it suits him—and getting results. But the results hint at elaborate Cold War espionage activities that seem inextricably confounding, even to Wallander, who, in any case, is troubled in more personal ways as well. Negligent of his health, he’s become convinced that, having turned sixty, he is on the threshold of senility. Desperate to live up to the hope that a new granddaughter represents, he is continually haunted by his past. And looking toward the future with profound uncertainty, he will have no choice but to come face-to-face with his most intractable adversary: himself.
