Henning Mankell (3 Feb 1948 – 5 Oct 2015)

"In life and in art Henning Mankell was a man of passionate commitment. I will miss his provocative intelligence and his great personal generosity. Aside from his stringent political activism, and his decades of work in Africa, he also leaves an immense contribution to Scandinavian literature."

- Kenneth Branagh, the third actor to play Wallander, pays tribute in a statement issued to the media yesterday after the death of the Swedish author.
