Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer wins 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature after late betting rush for Bob Dylan.
Bob Dylan was first officially nominated for the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature, and again for the 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 & 2011 ones.
"Dylan is a major American Bard & ministrel of the XX Century, whose words have influenced many generations throughout the world. He deserves a Nobel Prize in recognition of his mighty and universal powers".
