En natt hör José Antonio Maria Vaz skott från den övergivna teatern bredvid sitt bageri. På den upplysta scenen hittar han den skadade Nelio, ett gatubarn som gjort sig känd i hela staden för sin klokhet. Flämtande ber den skadade pojken honom om att bli uppburen till taket, där han kan andas in den friska luften från Indiska Oceanen. Medan hans liv sakta rinner ut, börjar Nelio berätta sin historia.

Det är en hemsk, vacker och fascinerande historia som berättas under tio nätter. Nelios berättelse leder oss genom kärlekens, barbariets och okuvlighetens växlande landskap på den afrikanska kontinenten.

Comédia infantil blev 1996 nominerad till såväl Augustpriset som Nordiska rådets litteraturpris, samt belönades med Sveriges Radio P1:s Romanpris, lyssnarjuryns val.

Utgiven av StorySide.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 2/20/2014

    " The storytelling is so compelling...to imagine the life of the street and such an intense life lived at 10 years. Such a privilege we claim, our birthright of place and time. A new understanding of the turmoil of a continent. And the generations that continue to flow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/4/2014

    " I am not sure if I really liked this book, but it is beautifully written and translated and it definitely swept me up as I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mariana | 2/2/2014

    " This is one of the best and saddest books. Once again, Henning Mankell manifests his great love for the street children of Mozambique, which is a terribly war-torn country. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Book | 1/26/2014

    " An engaging and mystical novel about street children in Mozambique. Centered around Nelio, a dying ten year old street child. It's a story of the loss of humanity and the disregard of these children's plight and a truly touching account of their lives. Powerful, harrowing and very different from Mankell's excellent mystery series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gloria | 1/5/2014

    " Mankell uses Mozambique as a model for this african country where revolutionaries, bandits and the old colonial guard clash bringing horrible devastation to the villagers and city dwellers who are just trying to live their lives. Nelio is one of the street children but not typical. He is a thinker, and at 12 years old, very old in his thoughts. On his death bed he relates his story and through that story gives a message to the world. A bit of a strange read. Not at all the same style as Mankell uses in his Wallendar books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natasha | 12/21/2013

    " very sad story about street kids and their struggle to merely survive and each one with a past and dreams of a beautiful future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samuel Gray | 12/15/2013

    " "That's how Nelio was. He thought it was possible to eat the wind." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Appel | 12/8/2013

    " A storyteller's tale - not a happy story, but one of human kindness in an impossible situation. I highly recommend this. It is wholly different than Mankell's Wallander series. It is almost like I am the fan of two different writers with the same name. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/6/2013

    " this is my first non "Kurt Wallander" book by Henning Mankell, and if it is anything like his mystery novels, then this book is going to be amazing. . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Errol Hess | 12/5/2013

    " Mankell is one of the greatest living mystery writers, but often he writes in other genres. This book is set in Mozambique, where the author spent many years. Its subject is the life of street boys and, beyond that, of Africans in a colony once ruled by Europeans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Migsar Navarro | 12/3/2013

    " I really liked this book, I think it's a nice interesting tale about how the world is and how it could be. Emphasizing that there are many happy events in our life even if we live in a hard world, and that most of it is as it is as a direct consequence of our actions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H.N. | 11/25/2013

    " Brilliant. Moving. Wondrous. Emotional. Heart-breaking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn Phelps | 8/27/2013

    " Beautiful language to tell a sometimes harsh, but ultimately uplifting story..."And the story had to be told. It could not be left lying there like some abaondoned and cast-off memory in the storerooms that are housed in every human brain." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 8/4/2013

    " As a fan of the Kurt Wallander series, I was disappointed in this book. Mankell is a master at crafting murder mysteries against the backdrop of gray and changing Sweden, but this book didn't hit the depth and meaning I think he was intending. Not his genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bachyboy | 6/29/2013

    " This is one of those books that stays with you long after you have read it. It is the tale told by ten year old Nelio as he lies dying on the rooftop of an African town. It is sad and haunting and quite beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 6/11/2013

    " This is not an easy book. There is savagery but also such beauty. Human beings can have such a tremendous capacity for cruelty while others gain such spiritual growth from the hardships they encounter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 6/6/2013

    " Manning Henkel's "Chronicler of the Winds" places me in Africa with voices that will not be silenced; voices that must echo; voices that long to heard by all who will listen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Mirvis | 4/30/2013

    " I'm hoping to read some of Mankell's mysteries, which I think I will enjoy more. This book is heavy with spiritualism, dream interpretation, African street culture and hopeless characters - not really my kind of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl S. | 4/19/2013

    " Haunting and sad, keeps you guessing until the very end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 2/2/2013

    " One of the best books I've read in years. Short, sweet, sad. All centered on a runaway boy who is dying, but doesn't do so before telling his life story to a young baker. "
