Mankell Builds Mozambique Village

As per the Local, Sweden’s English-language web newspaper:

Swedish crime fiction writer Henning Mankell has donated 15 million

kronor ($2.3 million) for the construction of homes for orphaned

children in Mozambique.

The author of the popular Wallander series of crime novels has long

divided his time between Stockholm and Maputo. He said he viewed it as

a privilege to divert some of his wealth to a new SOS Children’s

Village in his second home.

“What the hell should I do with all this money?” he wondered in a statement.

The money donated by Mankell will be used to build homes for 150 orphans near the western city of Chimoio.

That is a very cool and very charitable gesture.
