Adjö Henning Mankell
It is with deep sadness that Newcastle Noir laments the passing of one of crime fiction's finest contemporary authors. Many of us were first introduced to the Scandicrime fiction phenomenon through the work of Henning Mankell. His best-selling novels brought us Kurt Wallander, one of our much-loved crumpled detectives whose investigations invariably brought to light the concerns and social ills of Swedish society. Thank you Henning for the legacy you leave us, not just the literature, but also your activism and humanitarian endeavours, your work will live on.
