    The final novel written by the creator of the bestselling Wallender books, After the Fire is an elegiac work in which Mankell returns to the location and protagonist that featured in his 2009 novel Italian Shoes. Picking up the themes of ageing and mortality that were explored there, he delivers a novel quite unlike his others, one that has a mystery at its core but is much more than a mystery or crime novel. Rather, it is a melancholy fictional meditation on loneliness, love, loss and how to live a good life. Set on a small island in the Swedish archipelago, the plotline seems to unfold as inexorably as the tides but holds some surprises, chiefly among them the unpredictable and very human character of the elderly protagonist.
