— He was one of our great comedians. He ranged from the more serious form of drama to revytraditionen, where he was a giant. He had one line that was a little insightful bitsk and at the same time ironic and easy. He was the least of all pretentious. Really simple and straight forward with feet on the ground, ” says Staffan Götestam.
