Hello Wallander!

The Alexandria Campus Book Club met on February 4th to discuss Pyramid: The First Wallander Cases. Although some people found the bleak setting and curt prose challenging, others enjoyed the suspense of the mysteries and one of our number even developed a bit of a crush on Kurt Wallander (it's OK -- this is Wallander in pre-obesity and diabetes days). We struggled to detect the commentary the author claimed he intended about the state of the modern Scandinavian social democracy -- but perhaps the recurring theme of sickness had something to do with it (or maybe it's just all those sick days they have in Sweden).
