A cherished and very down to earth and popular actor here in sweden just passed away yesterday at the age of 56, after a time of fighting lung cancer, to young to go.
He may not be as familiar for the international crowd as he is here in sweden.

Mostly known for "as it is in heaven" and the millenium series "men that hates women" and the girl with the dragon tatto"

in most swedish movies he usually played nice cosey guys, Internationally he often got parts as a villain, such as against Tom Cruise in Ghost protocol, and latest in the movie with Emma Watson " Colonia" Playing a sect leader, also in te movie John Wick with Keanu reeves
The hundred code and zero Hour is also some tv- series he particpated in.

In sweden it came a bit like a shock, being still that young considering and no one really knew about his illness which he kept secret.

He seemed to be such a down to earth humble guy, R.I. P with this song from as it is in heaven, where he played an Music Director that had a deadly heart condition..great movie..
Gonna miss his acting...

I have a bit of a fetish for Swedish film and tv, so I've seen him in a lot of stuff, how very sad.

I have a bit of a fetish for Swedish film and tv, so I've seen him in a lot of stuff, how very sad.

Yes it is...he seemed to have been a nice guy and very appreciated here in sweden, maybe one of our most beloved ones, max von sydow and stellan skarsgård may be on top over there ..but Michael may have been more rooted and down to earth and very easy to identify with, I think he was beloved not just for his great acting, he also seemed very spontane and honest and genuine, thus liked very much.
Not sure, but I suspect lung cancer was a result of smoking.

Gerald Butler and Pierce Brosnan expressed their condolances as they enjoyed working with him very much, though it wasn´t that long ago (2011) that he got his break over there, while here in sweden known quite a bit more in movies and tv series that probably is unnoticed over there, and unfortunately I think there is where his best work was, and now I am not even counting in work in the theater.
personally my favourites has been " Grabben i graven bredvid" (The kid/guy in the grave next door) and "as it is in heaven"

Haven´t seen him in colonia and not in some of the other newer movies either, but will have keep an eye when those movies or shows arrives here.
Sad...since I think we would have seen him in a lot of great movies if it wasn´t for that horrible decise.
