On Stieg Larsson by Jonas Sundberg et al

I was expecting On Stieg Larsson to be a short biography of Stieg Larsson, infamous author of the Millennium Trilogy. Instead, it is a collection of short essays about Larsson, as well as some e-mail correspondence with the editor of his books. Still, I learned more about Stieg in these few short pages compared to when I first started reading this, like that he never got to see his books published, that the books we know them of as know was meant to be something else, and that some of the released covers captured the visual he imagined for them. It’s sad to know that Stieg will not be able to continue writing his brilliant series, even though he had plans for at least two more stories, and probably even more. And it was good to get on insight on how these stories and, especially, characters, came about. Definitely worth reading for an extra insight into the person who wrote The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and the Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
