Other books mentioned in his series

Stieg Larsson mentions numerous other mysteries that Blomkvist is reading in the millenium series. I am wondering if anyone has looked any up, has a list etc… so I can do the same. I borrowed the books, have now given them back and didn’t have the foresight to write down the titles before I returned the books

  1. Don’t forget Pippi Longstocking, by fellow swede Astrid Lindgren. There are lots of subtle references to Pippi.

    Isn’t Lisbeth the most wonderful grown up version of Pippi, what do you think?

  2. One of the writers is Ake Edwardson. Blomkvist’s daughter gave to him one of his novels. I bought ‘Frozen Tracks’, ‘Sun and Shadow’ and ‘Never End’. They are all very good.

  3. Another writer mentioned is Val McDermid. She’s excellent. I’m listening to Dragon on audiobook and can’t catch most of the names, but I’d love to have a reading list. Anyone else have a name or two, or more?

  4. He also mentions Sue Grafton – she has written an Alphabet Series and is currently up to U. He also mentions Sara Paretsky.

  5. I’ve read all Sue Grafton and Elizabeth George novels – waiting for them to release new novels as I could not find other authors who compared. That is, until I came upon Larsson’s books… and I found it extremely funny finding my favorite authors mentioned in his book.

  6. So many female authors mentioned! Stieg Larsson… The Man Who Loves Women. I must have a look at some of these.

  8. I really enjoy the Sue Grafton books. Another author with talent. The principal character, Kinsey Malone, is believable and the stories are written like one is. Similar to Stieg’s books.

  9. I began reading the Elizabeth George series and am so glad I did. She is mesmerizing. Check out the Inspector Lynley series. Her first book was published in 1989.
