Mankell was born in Stockholm, and grew up in the Swedish towns of Sveg (Härjedalen) and Borås (Västergötland). Mankell’s father Ivar was a judge and his grandfather, also called Henning Mankell (1868–1930), was a composer. At the age of 20 he already started a career as author and assistant director at the Riks Theater in Stockholm. In the following years he collaborated with several theaters in Sweden. In 1985 he founded the Avenida Theater in Maputo, Mozambique, where he spends much of his time and gets inspiration for his work. Recently he built up his own publishing house (Leopard Förlag) in order to support young talents from Africa and Sweden.
