Det ligger en man på gatan framför den blå automaten. I handen håller han en vit lapp. Den visar att han har 9765 kronor på sitt konto. Kort dessförinnan har ett taximord inträffat i Ystad. Förövarna är två unga flickor som tycks helt oberörda av gärningen. Helt oväntat lyckas den äldre av dem rymma. En sen kväll slocknar plötsligt ljuset. Ett strömavbrott slår ut stora delar av Skåne. Förklaringen finns i en ensligt belägen transformatorstation. Därinne ligger den svartbrända kroppen av en människa som nu mest liknar en mumie. Så småningom börjar kommissarie Wallander ana att de olika händelserna hänger samman. Det finns några som agerar. Som har ett syfte och en plan. Några har förstått hur sårbart det moderna samhället är. Och tänker utnyttja det till det yttersta.

Henning Mankells böcker om kommissarie Wallander har sålt i närmare 25 miljoner exemplar över hela världen. Prisbelönta. Filmatiserade. Brandvägg är den åttonde boken i serien.

Utgiven av StorySide.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joellen | 2/15/2014

    " The last of the "Kurt Wallander"books. I will miss this series, and think it is one of the better series I have read. The tone tended to be dark and brooding, but the story was always far reaching and realistic. The way the police department worked was right on, especially the fatigue and dogged tedium of cases. This novel has Kurt having difficulty with fellow officers. Omg is that realistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/6/2014

    " Good Book to listen to on a long drive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harley | 1/27/2014

    " Another excellent Kurt Wallender mystery. I like how the character of Wallander changes and grows. The novel also has a subplot involving office politics which left some loose ends to be picked up later. The main story line keeps you engaged with multiple murders and Wallander himself facing death. One of the themes being played out is that of betrayal which Wallander experiences in multiple ways. Another theme is how vulnerable we all are. A great book to listen to on CD. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Ballin | 1/22/2014

    " One of my favorites so far. Lot's of separate plots that seem completely unrelated that combine in the end. Last paragraph leaves a lot hanging and hopefully we'll find out what happens in the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/20/2014

    " I am a real fan of this series. I particularly liked this one because it had very clever bad guys. Wallender is such a multifaceted character, and one always learns a lot about Sweden, its culture, geography, and some pretty wrenching changes in modern times. I rate this as one of the very best mystery series out there - up in my personal pantheon with P.D. James, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George, Ian Rankin, and James Lee Burke, to name some of my all-time favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 1/17/2014

    " Excellent plot, a little bit "futuristic", but still very enjoyable for all Wallander's addicts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sigurást | 12/25/2013

    " Great, I,ve read it twice already. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/23/2013

    " Kurt Wallander: 8 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 12/20/2013

    " I enjoyed this one. Maybe one of the better plots, with interesting twists and turns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/20/2013

    " Much more emotional and funnier than the previous Wallander novels. Excellent mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Stearman | 12/17/2013

    " very good complicated story thank you Mr Branagh for introducing me to Wallender. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 False Millennium | 12/8/2013

    " One more to go in the series. I continue to love the mundane: stains on coats, coffee spills, fast food, dark blue cars repeatedly showing up. Mankell turns a backache into poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/8/2013

    " This would have gotten 5 stars if it didn't have the most red herrings of any mystery I have ever read. what is wrong with you, Henning Mankell? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grahambootle | 11/1/2013

    " The characters were OK. The police procedural parts were fine as far as I can tell. The description of the IT scenario was abysmal as is usual in almost every book I've read. The ending was a bit 'convenient'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyndee | 10/24/2013

    " Wow--apparently this is the 8th in the series, but this is only the second I've read. This story was intricate, the book fast-paced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 9/25/2013

    " scary about the internet and what can happen "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 9/8/2013

    " Recommended read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Kennedy | 8/21/2013

    " Didn't like as much as his earlier books but still a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria João Fernandes | 6/25/2013

    " ****1/2 Stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy harvey | 6/14/2013

    " Very complicated but excellent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 6/2/2013

    " This book is a translation. Obviously. But the translator. Didn't really like long sentences. With commas. For example. It flows in a very clipped style. Perhaps Swedish. Is like. This. I am enjoying it. Though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 5/23/2013

    " Love the Inspector Wallender series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/22/2013

    " I have liked all the Wallender mysteries I've read by Henning Mankell. This might have been my favorite because of the technology theme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 4/26/2013

    " This is another one of those Wallander books, like the earlier ones, where the mystery doesn't get fully resolved, and that's just how it is. I kind of like that approach - it's realistic. All told, though, this one wasn't as gripping as some of the others in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Enid Sperber | 4/17/2013

    " Henning Mankell's books about Kurt Wallendar are like children. One should not have favorites because they are all fantastic. However Firewall (for me) was especially memorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Helene | 2/2/2013

    " More of a thriller than his other plots, this one certainly kept the heat on. It is the story of betrayal from which I expect there to be repercussions, but there is a marvelous blessing at the end. I just am unsure as to whether it really works. Always surprising, but then blessing is. "
