Henning Mankell

tr. Marlaine Delargy

After the Fire

Published by: Harvill Secker

In Mankell’s last book the burning down of an island family home upends the life of an elderly recluse, leading to the examination and unexpected development of several relationships. It is a book full of humane reflections upon aging, and loss, and the fine grumpiness that made so many of Mankell’s characters recognizable. We’ll miss him.
