I have dedicated this thread to elaborate over the different characters in the Millenium Thrilogy as to who they are or to which “clan” they belong and suggest keys to how to understand nominations as for instance the MC-gang Svavelsjö MC.
As I grew up in Sweden, although, I was born in the USA i can contribute with local knowledge and understanding to some of the swedish language.
Please feel free to post your keys and suggestion on how to understand “names”.
Based on the question below please feel free to post your keys and suggestion on how to understand “names”.
Question from Kesie in Australia
For instance Zalachenko was a gangster for a very long time getting in trouble in a bar fights, etc. Police didn’t even find out that wasn’t his real name, how many more with not real name are there?
The girls father in the Millenium Thrilogy is a very interesting character and my understanding is that he is composed of more than one real person. First naturally their biological father who appears to be absent in the books. Then there is their “stepfahter” the Soviet agent who is father to Niederman with connection to powerful and corrupt persons in Sweden and post-soviet society.
