What is true in the fiction

It is Larssonn’s style to use narration as a means to denounce social or political issues. Men ho hate women title is one explicit declaration, but many citations inside the books afford also other arguments.

So what about the Zala and in general, the Sapo story?

  1. Im guessing true. Or rather that some parts of it are true. Shortly after the release of the books a scandal broke out in Sweden as politicians and other figures were found to have frequented a brothel responsible for the prostitution of minor girls and covered it up. The Swedish right-wing has a history of violence and bombs. It is also likely that certain people have been willing to protect figures like Zala at high costs. Not all defectors were nice guys. Whether the conspiracy is exactly or close to real events of course depends on the choices Larsson made as a fictive writer, but his descriptions of circles within circles abusing their powers to the ill-effect of innocent people is very plausible. There have also been scandals in Sapo before.
