Henning Mankell /
Stockholm, Sweden, 1948 /

Henning Mankell

He embarked upon his literary career in the seventies, as a playwright. He has published more than twenty novels, as well as plays and children's stories.

It was the series of novels with inspector Kurt Wallander as the leading character, translated into twenty-three languages, that brought him worldwide fame. The fifth woman was the first book in the Wallander series to be published in Spanish, and the cycle now comes to a close with the appearance of The pyramid.

His stories for younger readers feature, in Spanish, El perro que corría hacia una estrella or Las sombras crecen al atardecer.

Special mention must also be made of Comedia infantil , the first work in an extraordinary African cycle that has received several awards and revealed a different facet of the writer.

He now lives between Gothenburg (Sweden) and Maputo (Mozambique) where he directs the Teatro Avenida de Maputo.
