    Background

    Stiegs grandfather, an inspiring role model Stieg Larsson was born in Vasterbotten in northern Sweden in 1954. At the time of his birth, his parents were too young and too poor to keep him, so he was raised by his grandparents in a small village in the north of Sweden. Stieg's grandfather, Severin Boström, became the male role model for the young Stieg. Severin was strongly anti-fascist (and during the Second World War he was imprisoned in the work camp in Storsien for his anti-Nazi opinions)*. Had he been Danish, he would no doubt have been placed in a German Conc ... Read more

    Left-wing activism and anti-war protests After finishing school and his military service, Stieg Larsson worked a couple of years at a post office.

He edited a Trotskyite magazine, and he took a great interest in the ongoing war in Vietnam.Private mapping of extremists ... Read more

    The legacy

    Controversy surrounding the legacy Stieg Larsson spent 32 years of his life with the architect Eva Gabrielsson. However, they never married, maybe due to Stieg's dangerous work at the Expo-foundation. They did not have any children, and Stieg left no written will, so according to Swedish law, Stieg's estate was inherited by his father and brother. This sparked a dispute between Eva Gabrielsson and Stieg's relatives. She claims that they “were never a part of our lives” and that they are not the right persons handling Stieg's estate. ...

    Starting to reread the trilogy series, for the 3rd time. i love the fact i got the books. i am so addicted to the series and characters of the series. this is the BEST set of books and story line, right up there with the conceptual ideas of Harry Potter with ref to the story line.

    Spoiler i really hate to post this, esp since i love the characters of the org story. to put it mildly, this book sux. come on, Salander gets kidnapped and escape so fast, salander time in jail, blomkvist hardly written about. the motorcycle gang, come on and lastly rehashing a old nazi experiment .....i recommend to any, just go to the library and read that book. so when you get to the point of throwing the book away, you can just return it to the library.if this guy writes the next book i just might not read it. the spider web book was ok, nothing special.this book just plain sux.

  • Plot hole?
    Miss Pasko says:

    Phew - I'm glad someone posted this question AND that someone had the answer. I am really enjoying these books, and think over the characters and plots while I am drifting off to sleep. That visit to the car hire office had me stumped and leafing back through about 50 pages did not help. I kept saying to myself - Darn you, Larsson! You describe every cup of coffee these characters drink - even making sure someone turns off the coffee maker before leaving his flat! I know there must be a good explanation for why LS goes to THAT particular office.Many thanks Allan Hunter and katastophe!

    Masterpieces involve a lifetime, my hobbie is music composition and guitar, and writing was always on my mind, I'm thinking about the more important subjects about my life and when I get my conclusion, I will start to write maybe. Stieg Larsson made this fantastic work and had a big contribution for human rights, but he should take care of his life, maybe he could wait some years for publishing the book , maybe not, maybe he had to this way to make his message.

  • Where is Hedestad?
    Jussi Tuovinen says:

    Larsson puts his “Hedestad” and “Hedeby” clearly on the coast “about an hour” north of Gävle, but as they (unfortunately ;-) don’t exist the filmmakers had to find something which resembles more or less the descriptions in the book.As “heder” in Swedish means “hono(u)r” there’s quite heavy irony here as those activities in those places depicted in the book are actually quite far from honorable… :-pp Of course “the Honor of the (Vanger) Family” is a theme emphasized heavily in the book too.Talking about name allusions I guess it’s not a coincidence that the name “Vanger” sounds quite similar than Wagner, another name quite heavily although also unfairly connected with the Nazis too… ;-))

    I am no deep literary theorist. I very much enjoyed the first three and hence was really keen to read this. Turns out I enjoyed it equally, but this one brought me to tears where the others didn't.

  • The Girl in the Spider’s Web

    the 4th "Millennium"Book was quite interesting, thrilling ... but not so good as the first three books. There were places where so called "look into the future/ predictions" were written - it was too revealing, stealing the whole excitement from not-knowing what's going on at first sight. and at the end L.Salander coming on herself to M.Blomkvist... unbelievable, not typical for her... but maybe people change... maybe L.Salander's changing (as Keane's singing ;)) I've that book. I've quenched my curiosity.PS. Sorry for my English, I'm not a native Speaker and English isn't my everyday Language.

    I have read all four books and seen both american version and swedish versions of the movies that were made. Actually all four books are EXCELLENT – I’m thrilled that a fourth book was written and look forward to more…..I can see where the characters can keep going! I actually “read and listen” to the books and the reader is Simon Vance – an excellent ‘reader.’ I recommend listening to him read!

    Tara Lawrence-Stuart says:

    Did Lagercrantz use the incomplete fourth novel the family has and how does Eva Gabrielsson feel? What if she finishes Stieg’s partly written fourth book? Maybe we will see Dueling Dragonns? I write this in 2015, and Lagercrantz’ book The Girl In The Spider Web is out here in the USA. I have had misgivings about reading so far but ny curiosity is growing.
