I've recently experienced the crime solving of Henning Mankell's Inspector Kurt Wallander and Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigret. I enjoyed both, but Peter Robinson's Inspector Alan Banks has got me hooked more. Here's what I found in his first book, as I continue to explore this genre of crime mysteries.
Kurt Wallander is Henning Mankell's inspector in nine crime mysteries published in the U.S., soon to be ten. His detective work is now a major TV series with Kenneth Branagh in Masterpiece Mystery! This is my first meeting with the sleuth.
