I love to read Henning Mankell. I enjoyed his Kurt Wallander mysteries and wanted to read more. "The Man from Beijing" is a tale of murder, revenge and corruption. A massacre is discovered in a small village in Sweden. When Judge Birgitta Roslin reads of the ordeal, she realizes that she has family ties with some of the victims. She decides to investigate on her own, against the wishes of the local police. She tries to share her findings with them, but they are not interested until they realize that an outside force does not want her snooping around. She has two clues, a red ribbon and an old diary from the 19th century. The revenge dates back to the mid 1800's in America as the Chinese were used as slaves to build the railroad. This is a great read for mystery and thriller fans.
