Hans Folke "Hasse" Alfredson (born 28 June 1931 in Malmö) is a Swedish actor, film director, writer and comedian. He was born in Malmö, Sweden. He is known for his collaboration with Tage Danielsson (the two of them often referred to as Hasseåtage). His most celebrated contribution to their brand of humorist humanism was his ability to extemporize wildly absurd comic situations, for example in the so-called Lindeman dialogues. His 1981 film The Simple-Minded Murder was entered into the 32nd Berlin International Film Festival.
