Mankell's style (admirably retained in the translation) is as spare as the northern Swedish landscape, producing characters which etch themselves into the reader's mind, describing emotions as fundamental and searing as they are eternal. The story is both compelling and moving. The School Librarian. I liked the pithy, Hemingway-esque style of this novel with its taut, short sentences.

Series: Joel Gustafsson. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (e. avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators). Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has.

Mankell is too good an author. There should be rules against that. I'm 71 and have read countless works. This is the first book in my life that made me cry.

Maybe it's not a children's series of books after all. Serious topics are addressed. Henning Mankell is a wonderful writer

What's not to love about Henning Mankell. The only book I didn't like of his in his entire repertoire was Depths and couldn't finish it. All of his other books have been wonderful but I am a special fan of his Kurt Wallander Mysteries. Read that series starting in sequence from the first book because it follows the character's life. Even the teen series books by Mankell are great.

There are four novellas in this Henning Mankell series about young Joel Gustafson's coming of age. It is fascinating to read how Mankell can disclose the inner thoughts and fantasies of this young lad. Read the other three books before you read this one. Start at the beginning to get the complete journey.

Got hooked on the series felt I really got to know the characters and was sad when the story ended. Mankell is an amazing storyteller and read everything he writes.

Mankell is truly a good story teller. This is a coming of age tale with the young boy and his father at odds and several issues especially the future and the past, which needed to be addressed. Sweden is a beautiful country and in some areas completely remote, its interesting to see the contrast. Susan Young

More than just a children's book. Mankell has written a brilliant study of a boy's coming of age. At once tender and brutal, the characters have a depth and life that comes right up off the page.
Always engaging and brilliantly conceived mysteries by Mankell. One of the best crime writers ever. He takes readers on one adventure to another, weaving history, culture and humanity together in a great tapestry of story telling marvel.
