Invisible is a great thriller. I can’t say too much more about the plot because the twists and turns are the whole point of reading a book that wrong foots the reader at every turn . . . Christine Poulson kept me reading by giving out just enough information to intrigue and puzzle so that I had to read just one more chapter. That’s why, in the end, I just dropped everything else and read the last half of Invisible in one sitting.’

They saved the best until last. Last night’s Wallander was a worthy end to the series. The story was an improvement on some of the previous ones in the series. It had real pace – and a climax that gripped. I won’t give too much away about the plot as not everyone will have caught up with it yet. However it’s no secret that this was Wallander’s last bow: how much long could Wallander conceal the progress of his dementia? This strand was just as tense as the unravelling of the crime and I thought it was handled very well. It was a perfectly judged performance from Krister Hendriksson – what a wonderful actor he is – supported by a terrific cast, especially Charlotta Jonsson as Linda. The end was touching, undeniably bleak and yet not without its consolations.
Next week it’s back to Sicily and Montalbano. Lovely . . .
