    Mankell s novel is an indictment of the rise of hate groups in modern Sweden where xenophobic groups like Strong Sweden and other neo Nazi organizations promote their racial hatred towards others One can almost feel the cold snow and the isolation of Sweden in this well written novel of murder, suspense and careful police detection.The Return of the Dancing Master is bleak, yes, but it is fascinating and chilling, with the traditional flawed hero, and it is refreshingly unformulaic The plot is not ever predictable and it constantly shifts beneath the reader to create a kind of gutsy suspense and a great pace A dark, excellent story by a talented writer.

    The Return of the Dancing Master features a new Henning Mankell detective named Stefan Lindman Coincidentally, perhaps, a character named Stefan Lindman is Linda Wallander s odd, unconventional boyfriend in the first BBC4 TV series He was killed off at the end of the first series This series stars Krister Henriksson, rather than the Swedish Wallander starring Rolf Larsgaard or the British version starring Kenneth Brannagh.Published in 2000, it was translated into English in 2003 by Laurie Thompson, and won the 2005 Gumshoe Award for Best European Crime Novel.While Stefan Lindman, a young, 37 year old policeman, is on extended sick leave due to cancer of the tongue, he hears about the murder of Herbert Molin, his former colleague, and decides to investigate it himself Lindman s inquiry becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as he uncovers the links between Herbert Molin s death and a global web of neo Nazi activities.Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, known to be a recluse, lives alone in a remote cottage Two things have come to occupy his attention his enthusiasm for the tango and an mania about demons he believes are pursuing him Early one morning shots shatter Molin s window by the time his body is found it is almost unrecognizable He has been dumped near his house He s been tortured his back has been whipped, his feet flayed The wounds are full of grit and dirt There is only one clue bloody footprints in the pattern of the tango on the living room floor.Like all Mankell s thrillers, the northern European landscape and climate are characters in the novel Most days, it drizzles, and when it s not drizzling, it s lightly snowing When it s not lightly snowing, it s snowing for Sweden.The central policeman, this time, Lindman, is the focus for Mankell as much as the crime itself Struggling to face up to his own mortality following his cancer diagnosis, he is curiously freed up to investigate another person s death While being driven to solve a murder, he often reflects that it may be his last The crime forces him to think about his own beliefs and values.Giuseppe Larson joins Lindman in the investigation by a man, a infrequency character in Mankell novels, a laughing policeman Larson is a relaxed, happily married local policeman who is than willing to admit I have absolutely no idea what is going on It indeed is a puzzling, intricate case with no witnesses and no obvious motives Lindman becomes and impulsive as he uncovers the links between Molin s death, World War II, and an underground neo Nazi network that runs much further and deeper than he had ever imagined I was unaware of Sweden s role in World War II officially, the country was neutral, but it gained monetarily from both sides and Swedes were split in their sentiments toward the Allies and the Axis countries.Sweden s part in WWII was very complex and byzantine During the German invasion of the Soviet Union, Sweden allowed the Wehrmacht to use Swedish railways to transport a German infantry divisions along with their armaments from Norway to Finland German soldiers traveling on leave between Norway and Germany were allowed passage through Sweden Sweden sold iron ore to Germany throughout the war At the same time, Sweden shared military intelligence with the Allies and helped to train soldiers made up of refugees from Denmark and Norway, to be used in the liberation of their home countries It also allowed the Allies to use Swedish airbases between 1944 and 1945.In addition, Sweden became a refuge for anti fascist and Jewish refugees from all over the Scandinavian countries In 1943, following an order to deport all of Denmark s Jewish population to concentration camps, nearly all of Denmark s 8,000 Jews were brought to safety in Sweden Sweden also became a refuge for Norwegian Jews.Molin s murder proves to be as tangled and intricate As Lindman s investigation progresses, he realizes he never knew the real Molin He learns that Molin was a lifelong Nazi sympathizer The plot involves the secret world of Nazis, both past and present The unrelenting Lindman turns out to be an clever and resourceful investigator, though those seeking action rather than ratiocination and psychological introspection will be disappointed Hard boiled detection is not Mankell s style Secrets are slowly and logically unraveled, and thoughtful readers with a taste for the unusual will find Lindman, and the mystery he solves, provocative.I wish that I could read Swedish I would like to know what Mankell s prose technique is actually In English, the prose can be cold and spare On my bucket list, I will have to include research of the different translators of all the Mankell books I have read to compare their approaches.

    Es un tremendo libro Mankell es un seco Adoro y aprecio mucho ese ritmo pausado pero muy cautivante para ir planteando el conflicto y el caso No hay nada obvio aspecto muy relevante en un libro policial y la ambig edad de lo que pasa nos interpela mucho.Por otro lado, ese protagonista est muy bien Lleno de contradicciones y enfermo, agrega una buena dosis de tormento Le cuesta todo y eso es buen simo porque es cre ble En fin, gran novela Siempre extra ar a Wallander, pero todav a queda mucho Mankell.

    Stefan Lindman mais novo que Kurt Wallander, mas as semelhan as entre os dois policias s o imensas Ambos s o pensativos, obstinados e quase obsessivos na persegui o dos seus objetivos e intui o Acima de tudo, s o dois homens cansados do mundo Enquanto Wallander sofre de diabetes e excesso de peso, diagnosticado a Lindman, logo no inicio do livro, cancro da l ngua E durante a baixa por doen a, tr s semanas antes de come ar o tratamento ao cancro, que Lindman se envolve numa investiga o policial sobre a morte misteriosa de um velho e enigm tico policia que foi seu parceiro no inicio da sua carreira.Estamos na Su cia, est frio e cai neve constantemente As paisagens s o escuras e desertas, mas nem por isso deixam de ser belas.A par da investiga o, Lindman tem de lidar com os seus dem nios pessoais Como sempre, Henning Mankell foca se tanto nas personagens como no enredo, tornando a hist ria soberba Lindman est a investigar a morte de um colega, ao mesmo tempo que se confronta com a sua mortalidade e os seus desejos para o futuro.Para al m das tramas surpreendentes e das incertezas que s nos fazem estar mais concentrados, na tentativa de captar o mais nfimo detalhe, suspeitando de tudo e de todos, The Return of the Dancing Master aborda tem ticas atuais e pertinentes O tema principal o nazismo, dos segredos do passado e da sua presen a na Su cia nos dias que correm Neste contexto, Mankell aborda os temas da isola o, viol ncia, ressentimento, intoler ncia, vingan a e o facto de o liberalismo s estar presente na superf cie do seu pa s natal Em contraste, entre as p ginas deste thriller, tamb m encontramos o amor, a amizade, o tango e o desejo pela vida e tudo o que ela tem para oferecer.Mais uma vez, num pequeno livro encontrei um mundo que me acolheu durante uns dias Fico com as mem rias, as reflex es e uma quest o que ficou comigo ser verdade que as pessoas s o todas realmente boas, sendo as circunst ncias as nicas respons veis que nelas despertam o mal, proporcionando o seu desenvolvimento e propaga o

    As a big fan of Henning Mankell s Wallander series, I had high hopes for this story on the periphery of Wallander s Sweden, since it is one of Mankell s highest profile non Wallander books, but while it was okay, I found myself mostly annoyed My annoyance was easy to pin down Mankell is wearing his politics like a big old Groucho Marx nose on this one It s not that I disagree with his politics I don t But there was a complete and utter lack of subtlety in his anti Nazi, anti neo Fascist diatribes, and they reached a point where I felt his message lost power, nearly making some of the Nazis, particularly the one at the heart of the tale, almost sympathetic Mankell lacked the ability to weave his message into the tale, to hold onto his message, to win over the reader while having his characters overtly discuss their concerns This ability was the hallmark of two of his greatest influences, Maj Sjowall Per Wahloo, and it certainly felt like their ability to be politically critical while keeping us engaged with the plot and the characters was something Mankell was striving for here He was striving, but he didn t reach his goal It was an interesting enough mystery, but the heavy handed preaching took its toll on me at least I was pleased, however, to see how Mankell tied this story into the greater Wallander verse It was a nice touch A light touch Not overdone at all Too bad he didn t apply that lightness to the whole tale.

    Che noia, che barba, che barba, che noia bis Mi sto arrendendo di fronte all evidenza che Henning Mankell non sia uno scrittore adatto a me.Con o senza Wallander, non cambia nulla.Non dico che manchi di inventiva, perch alcuni spunti sono addirittura geniali, come in questo caso i passi di danza sul luogo del delitto Purtroppo per questi colpi di genio non vengono sfruttati in modo convincente, n inseriti in un contesto altrettanto originale e trascinante restano semplici promesse nell ambito di uno sviluppo della vicenda trito e ritrito, stiracchiato, labirintico e irrimediabilmente noioso.La stellina in pi ancora una volta un personale tributo alla suggestiva ambientazione nordica, che non manca mai di affascinarmi.

    This is the best of the Henning Mankell books The murder that starts off the book is incomprehensible, but the hanging of Nazi war criminals in the prologue gives us a hint As usual the Swedish gloom and weather sets the tone and the deep understanding of motivation drives the book.

    I m veering off from the crowd on this one 67% of the ratings are for 4 5 stars I don t get it.The protagonist is a 30 year old detective who is off on sick leave because he has cancer of the tongue, don t you know If you read the book, he will tell you every chance he gets I m not sure what the intent was behind having such an angst ridden, whiny, self absorbed character It didn t add anything to the story In fact, if it had been left out, there would be no effect to the story except that it would have been a whole lot shorter It may have actually improved the story.Things seemed to be slightly off kilter throughout the novel Police procedure was sloppy and archaic Even 14 years ago the time setting of the story , a hotel clerk wouldn t hand over a guest s room key without a search warrant The whole scene of them trying to get the garage employee to check to see if a certain vehicle was parked there was ludicrous There was one line that I can t shake It could be blood But it could be chocolate Seriously We are in trouble if the police can t tell if a stain is blood, chocolate, or something else entirely It wasn t through any skilled detective work that they solved the crime They stumbled on the solution Correction, it was handed to them.Just about every review that I ve read commented on how dark this story was Dismal, is like it.

    Ormai, dopo tre letture fatte di Mankell tra cui, punta di diamante, Delitto di mezza estate mi azzardo quasi a definirlo uno di quegli autori certezza , uno di quelli coi quali posso andare a colpo sicuro nel trovare una buona lettura thriller Nel caso di questo romanzo, poi, vado controcorrente rispetto a tanti commenti di utenti che lo definiscono lento e noioso, e dico che a me, in tutta la sua semplicit , piaciuto davvero tantissimo La neve, il freddo, un casolare sperduto in un paesino del nord della Svezia, un ex poliziotto ritrovato ucciso al suo interno accanto a una scia di sangue, un giovane poliziotto malinconico e tormentato, un indagine non facile Il buio e il silenzio dei paesaggi svedesi, l inquietudine e il tormento dell anima, la follia e il dolore del passato, che in fondo tanto passato non Basta, stop Mankell va sempre dritto al punto e l si ferma, senza perdersi in chiacchere inutili, in descrizioni non funzionali alla trama centrale, in futili e prolissi passaggi, ed per questo che mi piace cos tanto Anche quando non ci sono azioni e movimenti l attenzione del protagonista e, di conseguenza del lettore resta fissa sul mistero che ha aperto la storia, facendo costantemente provare a lui e, al lettore un senso di inquietudine e di attesa che rende la lettura godibile Per questo motivo non definirei assolutamente i romanzi di Mankell noiosi, anzi Il mistero sempre al centro, e quando poi il mistero si accompagna ad una tematica di cattere sociale o storico come in questo caso che induce il letture alla riflessione, beh, ci troviamo di fronte a un Signor Thriller In conclusione bellissimo e da leggere mentre fuori imperversa la neve.
