The Fifth Woman: A Kurt Wallander Mystery Henning Mankell, Author, Steven T. Murray, Translator New Press $ (p) ISBN More By and About This Author. The Fifth Woman is a particularly good example of Henning and Wallander exhibiting their sleuthing skills amid a far spun plot that begins in Africa. As most mystery fans should know, Mankell and Wallander are a "must" for any serious reader, and, I should mention, as well as Stieg Larsson/5(5).

Book Summary of The Fifth Woman (Wallander #6) Inspector Kurt Wallander is home from an idyllic holiday in Rome, full of energy and plans for the future. Autumn settles over the province of Skane, and Wallander prays the winter will be peaceful.

A year later in Sweden, Inspector Kurt Wallander is baffled and appalled by two murders.
