Magnus Härenstam was not afraid of death.
Dear friend Brasse Brännström, he could even joke about his tombstone.
– Brasse said: “it should say ‘He did anyway Five ants are more than four elephants” and then said Magnus, “then I can lie next and it says ‘… I too,’” says Petter Karlsson, author Härenstams autobiography.
Yesterday died Magnus Härenstam in his home after a long battle with cancer. Just a few weeks ago released Magnus Härenstam his memoirs, which Petter Karlsson helped him to write.
They often talked about death.
– We talked about death as a part of the book . Almost exactly a year ago we met the Brazilian in what proved to be his last interview. Then I was hit, and Magnus Brasse at a hotel in Stockholm and it was two fantastic hours where the two guys, old friends, almost reunited, says Petter Karlsson.

He says that Magnus Härenstam was very keen that Brasse Brännström, who died last August, would accept that he wrote a book.
– He felt so incredibly grateful for Brasse. Magnus was the first to say that it was thanks to Brasse that I am who I am, without him I would not be as well known or trusted loved one if not Brasse had existed. And Brasse had the same opinion about Magnus, says Petter Karlsson and adds:
– He had no belief that it would live on in some form, more than on DVD, he said.
