I can't say I disagree on the evaluation of Mankell versus Stieg Larsson. I have some of the same problems with both authors, and I also prefer Mankell as the classier act.


I must say, in Shapiro's Mankell v. Larsson review, that Strindberg is an awfully strange choice for the sometimes dull but never stupid exemplar. Typically, one might cast Ibsen as Mankell, and Strindberg as Larsson.
