Snippet: R.I.P. Henning Mankell (1948-2015)

Mankell was the first Nordic crime novel author this blogger ever read. He always found the right balance when describing violence, human feelings, etc. i.e. he was never too explicit or shallow.

The Guardian has got interesting background material on Mankell.
