De jonge Wallander (The Pyramid) released in Dutch
Posted 2004-12-10
De jonge Wallander by Henning MankellIn October, Dutch readers were offered De jonge Wallander (The Pyramid) from De Geus, Henning Mankell's publisher in the Netherlands. The title literally translates into English as "The Young Wallander".

Like the Swedish title Pyramiden, the German title for this book was originally titled Die Pyramide, literally "The Pyramid". However subsequent editions have changed to the title of Wallanders erster Fall, or "Wallander's First Case". It's not known which title will be used for an English-language translation so for now I am going to continue to use the translation from Swedish of "The Pyramid".

Willem Rol, a Wallander fan from the Netherlands, has posted his thoughts on the book here. I have run his Dutch text through a translation program and posted a quick-n-dirty English translation here.
