A Swedish-South African initiative has brought to our shores Mr Olof Somell, the curator of the Nobel Museum in Stockholm.
702's Azania Mosaka spoke to Somell about the Nobel Prize in general and this year's winners in particular.
Somell said this year's winners were more representative of the globe than it has previously been the case when winners would be predominantly from Europe or the United States.
It's a very global prize this year... we have a very wide spectrum, from Belarus to Japan to Sweden— Olof Somell, Curator of Nobel Museum
