Two essays from readers on Henning Mankell
Posted 2004-06-21, updated 2006-09-20
Unknown actor portreys Kurt Wallander in the documentary "The World of Henning Mankell"Today we have two essays on Henning Mankell from readers.

The first is from Alejandro García Puig of Spain. His essay concerns One Step Behind and is titled "The narrative mastery or the triumph of sobriety". Read it either in English or Spanish.

The second essay is by Pierre Grimaud of France and is titled "Henning Mankell et la série policière sur Kurt Wallander, Quelle est sa critique de la société suédoise ?" That article is only available in French at this time.

Thanks to Azita of France and Alejandro for sending these in for us to read.
