Daniel - Henning Mankell

In a departure from his world-famous Wallender detective series, Henning Mankell’s new murder mystery is set in 1874 and focuses on crimes of colonialism and racism. The first victim is a mentally retarded Swedish girl. Her crime goes unsolved until much later, when the central plot, involving an entomologist and the orphaned African boy he brings back to Sweden, converges with the novel’s opening. DANIEL (New Press, $26.95) is an evocative and often troubling look at history, ambition, and betrayal. Mankell’s acute psychological sensitivity makes Daniel, as the San boy is re-christened, an unforgettable character, struggling with a strange new culture and yearning to return home and avenge his parents’ killings.
