Henning Mankell, the acclaimed author of the Kurt Wallander mysteries, has put his unmistakable stamp on this gripping new thriller. In the tradition of John le Carre's "The Constant Gardener, Kennedy's Brain" was inspired by Mankell's anger at ongoing inequities that permit a few people to have unprecedented power over the many poor Africans who have none. Already a bestseller in Europe, "Kennedy's Brain" is both a thrilling page-turner and a damning indictment of inhuman greed in the face of the African AIDS crisis.

Random House, 4 сент. One of the stranger Mankell books I've read. I think I get what he was trying to do, but I can't say I was drawn in too well by the story. When archaeologist Louise Cantor's son Henrik is found dead in his flat, she refuses to believe it was suicide. Clues that only a mother could detect lead her to believe something more sinister took place. In her grief she begins to investigate Henrik's death and when Louise finds a photograph of an unknown girlfriend in Mozambique she decides to travel there.

Mankell is a master mystery writer, and this novel will not disappoint from that standpoint. He knows how to maintain tension, how to thread a complex story and how to provide the color of context and place. Kennedy's brain is an entertaining novel. But when Mankell gets on his high horses and gives us the nasty, brutish forces of the West being responsible for a cloak and dagger explanation of the Aids epidemic, then he loses me altogether. I do not discount the bad behavior of Western companies and individuals, but the Aids epidemic in Africa has a much more complex story to it: for example, how do you classify the Aids denial of Thabo Mbeki, the former President of South Africa? Mankell gets so wrapped up in his anti-Western yarn that he messes things up a bit: nobody explains why this horrible man (the nasty brute at the center of the web) can kill several men but somehow lets the central character go free and unharmed, and other such inconsistencies. For Mankell, who is a tight and disciplined writer, these are bad mistakes. A good mystery novel, but not one of his best. Scandinavian guilt interfering with Mankell's good -or great- gifts as a writer.
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
not up to his usual. This genre is not for him. Plus he admits that he was driven by anger. When a writer feels that he should put the manuscript down until he can write more dispassionately

Good but not his best

gripping

Henning is a genius. He is realistic, even depressingly so, but that makes for true fiction.

arrived in good condition, all very good

Interesting perspectives, interesting character development..

One might get tired of trying to keep up with the main character and remembering where the action is. Not oyur typical Henning Mankell, however refreshing change from Wallenders depression.
I don't know what I expected with this title but the book has almost nothing to do with Kennedy's brain. That is just a passing interest to the main character. It has nothing really, to do with the actual unfolding of this story. There are a lot of twists and turns in the story-line and I kept expecting the story to bring us into a great mystery regarding Kennedy. Never happened. So for me, the title is misleading.
