Hans Folke "Hasse" Alfredson (born 28 June 1931) is a Swedish actor, film director, writer and comedian. He was born in Malmö, Sweden. He is known for his collaboration with Tage Danielsson as the duo Hasse & Tage. His most celebrated contribution to their brand of humorist humanism was his ability to extemporize wildly absurd comic situations, for example in the Lindeman dialogues.

At the 11th Guldbagge Awards, he won the Best Director award for his 1975 film Egg! Egg! A Hardboiled Story.[1] His 1981 film The Simple-Minded Murderer won three awards at the 18th Guldbagge Awards[2] and was entered into the 32nd Berlin International Film Festival.[3] His 1985 film False as Water won the award for Best Director at the 21st Guldbagge Awards.[4]

1992–1994 Hans Alfredson was head of the open-air museum Skansen in Stockholm. He has also written a string of books, some intensely comic in a Monty Python style, some equally intensely tragic, some a mixture of the two.

He is the father of directors Daniel and Tomas Alfredson.
