Mankell`s crime series featuring policeman Kurt Wallander sold more than 40 million books and was turned into a TV drama starring Sir Kenneth Branagh. He also wrote dozens of plays, novels, children`s books and screenplays. Mankell died of cancer. More here: http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-34442252
