In Memoriam…

This episode of Crime Fiction News Break was recorded before news came of the death of Henning Mankell, talented author and the creator of the iconic Kurt Wallander. The crime fiction world is smaller without him. This episode is dedicated to his memory.

    Saddened learn of Henning Mankell’s death. It was such a shock. Only 67 years old. Taken too soon. Thanks for the news update, Margot.

  2. Wow, Margot. That was even better than I’d imagined. Thank you. Yay! I can’t wait to share it.

  3. Thanks as always, Margot! And what a great hat! I’ve always wanted a sheriff’s badge… πŸ˜‰

    Really must read The Ghosts of Altona – yet another Scottish author I’ve never got around to trying. *sighs*

    • Thanks, FictionFan – glad you liked the hat. Sheriff’s badges are great things πŸ™‚ – And I do think you’d like Craig Russell’s work. That said though, I know all about how hard it is to read all of the authors one would like to read *sighs.* There’s just never enough time.

    Margot, cheers for the update.

  6. Thank you Sheriff Margot. I do hope you do not have a pair of handguns strapped around your waist.

    • Happy to be here for the citizens, Bill. And no, no guns. People know I write crime fiction, and that’s usually enough to make them not want to cross me… πŸ˜‰

  7. I love the way you keep us all uptodate Margot – and it is particularly exciting to get our news from the sheriff.

  8. Love the hat and the update!

    Congratulations to Sue!

  9. Sad news about Henning Mankell. Enjoyed all the great news on the Crime Fiction News Break, Margot. Love the hat. It’s fun to see what type of hat you’ll be wearing in the next news break. πŸ™‚

  10. Oh Em Gee, Margot, how did I miss this. That hat’s the best yet! Thanks for keeping us updated as always πŸ™‚

What's your view? I'd love to hear it.
