Kerri's Pick of the Week is 'The Fifth Woman' by Scandinavian crime writer Henning Mankell. It's the sixth book featuring Mankell's most famous character, Inspector Kurt Wallander, a police officer in the small Swedish town of Ystad.

"I love the atmospheric moodiness of the landscape," Kerri said. "And his character reflects that. I love how imperfect Kurt Wallander is."

This time, Wallander must find a connection between the murders of five women in Algeria and the death of a car dealer in Sweden.
