Stieg Larsson

Biography

Date of birth: 15 August 1954

Date of death: 9 November 2004

Stieg Larsson was the editor of political magazine Expo from 1999, having previously worked at a major news agency. He was a leading expert on anti-democratic, right-wing extremist organisations - a specialism that reportedly earned him death threats and political enemies.

Larsson's sudden and unexpected death in November 2004 came the year before the publication of his debut crime novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The book is the first entry in his posthumously published Millennium trilogy.

Larsson's success has played a part in breaking the market for other Scandinavian crime writers with authors such as Jo Nesbo and Henning Mankell now enjoying renewed popularity among a much larger, global readership.
