The Man Who Smiled Reviews


"'By far the best writer of police mysteries today'" -- Michael Ondaatje "'Mankell is one of the most ingenious crime writers around. Highly recommended'" Observer "'The real test of thrillers of this kind is whether you want to spend more time in the detective's company. I certainly do'" -- Sean French Independent "'Mankell is a powerful writer'" Independent "'Sweden's lord of criminal misrule'" Independent

About Henning Mankell


Henning Mankell (1948-2015) became a worldwide phenomenon with his crime writing, gripping thrillers and atmospheric novels set in Africa. His prizewinning and critically acclaimed Inspector Wallander Mysteries continue to dominate bestseller lists all over the globe and his books have been translated into forty-five languages and made into numerous international film and television adaptations: most recently the BAFTA-award-winning BBC television series Wallander, starring Kenneth Branagh. Driven by a desire to change the world and to fight against racism and nationalism, Mankell devoted much of his time to working with charities in Africa, including SOS Children's Villages and PLAN International, where he was also director of the Teatro Avenida in Maputo. In 2008, the University of St Andrews conferred Henning Mankell with an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters in recognition of his major contribution to literature and to the practical exercise of conscience. www.henningmankell.com
