Mankell Considers Hebrew Ban

Published torsdag 3 juni 2010 kl 13.30
Henning Mankell speaks to Swedish Radio on his arrival back in Sweden

After witnessing the Israeli commando attack on the Ships to Gaza convoy first hand, Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell says he is considering prohibiting the translation of his books into Hebrew.

Mankell, author of the books about the detective Kurt Wallander, tells the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” that he is a best-selling author in Israel. But he says he has to think the idea through, because he doesn’t want to hurt the wrong people.

The Wallander books, set in the southern Swedish coastal town of Ystad, have sold well, and have been filmed by the BBC.

Mankell was one of 11 Swedes who participated in the aid flotilla, and he has been strongly critical of the Israeli actions, which he describes as piracy.
