R.I.P. Henning Mankell, 1948-2015

by Janet M. Coleman on 10/06/15

Henning Mankell, one of the world's most accomplished crime fiction writers, died on October 5, 2015, at the age of 67.  <More about Henning Mankell>

Mankell, a master of the crime fiction genre called "Nordic Noir," created one of the most popular fictional characters of all time: the Swedish police detective Kurt Wallender, hero of a series of police procedural books. <More about these books.>

Mankell was one of my favorite writers and he gave me many many hours of reading and viewing pleasure. I'll miss him.
