Henning Mankell

Wallander shut his eyes.  In his mind he saw a burning wall in front of him.  He readied himself.
Then he ran straight through the wall.  He only singed his hair and skin.
He opened his eyes again and smiled.
Something was behind him.
Something else was only just beginning.
(From Firewall, a novel originally published in Swedish 1998 and subsequently published in English in 2002.)
