Henning Mankell (1948-2015)

October 5, 2015

Henning_Mankell_3_2011_ShankboneI was sad to read that Henning Mankell has passed away at the age of 67 after suffering from cancer. There have been many great crime writers, but Mankell became one of the very best by creating the character Kurt Wallander who, like Poirot or Philip Marlowe, people felt they knew because they liked him and sympathised with him.

RIP Henning.
