The Man Who Smiled

An older lawyer is driving home after meeting with a client. He is scared and worried. Suddenly in the middle of the road ahead he sees a chair with a human figure sitting in it. He stops the car and gets out to investigate. An assailant hits him from behind and he is instantly dead. At the same time, Detective Chief Inspector Kurt Wallander has been on sick leave for more than a year and he is thinking of resigning. The lawyer’s son, a friend, comes to see him, thinking that his father’s death can’t be an accident. Two weeks later, the son is shot. This upsets Wallander and he decides to go back to work and solve the murder. The dark and moody Kurt Wallander novels present a chance to see the country of Sweden through a native’s eyes.

Angel's Flight

One reviewer wrote that Angels Flight was not Connelly’s best, but I still found it interesting. In Angel’s Flight, Howard Elias, an African American lawyer fond of suing the LAPD, is found murdered on the Angel's Flight train. This is set shortly after the Rodney King riots and Harry has to deal with department politics and racial tension as he seeks to solve the crime. He’s also trying to give up smoking and his wife has been out gambling again. Bosch breaks all the rules to find the killer as always. I enjoy the hard boiled detective stories that Connelly writes.
