The missing piece of the internationally bestselling Kurt Wallander mystery series: the story of Kurt Wallander's beginnings.

Revealing a side of Wallander that we have never seen, the long stories collected in The Pyramid are vintage Mankell.

In these five riveting tales we watch Kurt Wallander come into his own not only as a detective but as a human being
