Henning Mankell departs from his well-known Swedish mystery style to tell the story of a displaced boy. It's not predictable or particularly "feel good," but very captivating and descriptive. very evident in this book. One person found this helpful.

Henning Georg Mankell (Swedish pronunciation: ; 3 February 1948 – 5 October 2015) was a Swedish crime writer, children's author, and dramatist, best known for a series of mystery novels starring his most noted creation, Inspector Kurt Wallander. He also wrote a number of plays and screenplays for television. He was a left-wing social critic and activist. In his books and plays he constantly highlighted social inequality issues and injustices in Sweden and abroad

Over his head hung a chandelier on which several of the wax candles had already burned down. His memory slowly came back. He had seen Kiko somewhere in the darkness behind all the people staring at him, and he had tried to get to him. It had been like throwing himself into a whirlpool in a river.

Henning Mankell never disappoints! Daniel is different from the author's Wallander series, although I have found some similarities with his Africa/Swedish based fiction stories. It does not matter what kind of story Mankell is telling, he tells it so well that you would not be able to put it down until the last page. That's precisely what I did, finishing it at one o'clock this morning. I Loved Henning Mankell's book The Italian Shoes so I absolutely did not expect this from such a terrific writer! Daniel was cumbersome and I didn't actually ever get to the place where I cared about the characters.

His new novel Daniel is an elegiac, unexpected story that only he could have told. In the 1870s, Hans Bengler arrives in Cape Town from Smland, Sweden, driven by a singular desire; to discover an insect no one has seen before and name it after himself

Daniel by Henning Mankell; Harvill Secker, £1. 9. Since retiring Wallander, Mankell’s social concerns have assumed centre stage in his fiction with his books and conscience now, it seems, working in tandem. While the world watched as Israeli soldiers captured ships attempting to break the blockade, few people were aware that among their prisoners was one of the world’s most successful and acclaimed writers, Henning Mankell. The Swede has long been known as much for his keen commitment to social and political issues as for his creation of the dour Nordic copper Wallander, the subject of two BBC series.

If I had written this book it would have been different and it would not have been so insightful. So for those people who wanted a happy ever after or some social justice, you will have to wait. Mankell writes it the way it could have been.
If this is not fiction, I could still believe it was true. Henning Mankell is not here to please all the people all the time. He is a writer who will stretch your emotions and hold your feet to the fire with his stories. Thanks Mr. Mankell for rattling my emotional cage and for bringing a child's prospective to the light.

I am a big Henning Mankell fan, especially of his Wallander series, so when I saw a special Kindle offer for Daniel, I decided to purchase it. The novel was interesting, and not similar to the Wallander series so if you're a fan of just that style then you may not like this book. I enjoyed the historical context; I felt like I was in Sweden in the 1800s with the vivid descriptions, and the portions about Africa are fantastic. I really enjoyed the sections told from Daniel's point of view. It's a somewhat depressing story and subject matter, and Mankell tells the story with a refreshing honesty that doesn't try to sugar coat what happens with the boy and the sands he so desperately misses. It's worth a read, although I felt it dragged in some spots and struggled to read a lot in one sitting due to the subject matter.

I think that it is 3rd person, but unsure. Nonetheless. It is very compelling and well written. A boy whose family was murdered and he taken to a place far away from his country. He dreamed of going back home. Reading this book opened up a well of emotions. Happy, funny, and sad! It is a must read!

I first read Mankell suggested by a Swedish friend. This was Italian Shoes. Followed by all Wallanders and Man from Beijing. Now I just finished Daniel. A tremendous story about coliding cultures and values, fathers and son, relationship with death and happiness. Set as a mistery, with deep values description and ethical argumentation, is a must Mankell read.

Henning Mankell departs from his well-known Swedish mystery style to tell the story of a displaced boy. It's not predictable or particularly "feel good," but very captivating and descriptive. Mankell knows Africa and understands cultural differences...very evident in this book.

Arrived exactly as described
Once again Henning Mankell has written a powerful yet beautiful story -- always provocative. I don't read Swedish, but the translation reads smoothly, so I assume the original is written eloquently.
