In Mankell’s last book the burning down of an island family home upends the life of an elderly recluse, leading to the examination and unexpected development of several relationships. It is a book full of humane reflections upon aging, and loss, and the fine grumpiness that made so many of Mankell’s characters recognizable. We’ll miss him.
