Stieg Larsson, My Friend Reviews
This is a truly wonderful book and a great account of a beloved friend.If you loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and want to know moreabout the author read this.Stieg Larsson was a remarkable person and his story stayed with me for a long time
Stieg Larsson,famed author of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a brilliant novel dealing with political extremism in Sweden, was motivated to write as part of a long and passionate campaign against pseudo Nazis in Sweden, an obsession which harmed his health from overwork and resulted in early death, which this fascinating book makes clear.The huge international success of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the novels which followed brought him financial success too late but left an inheritance of added strength to his campaign on an international scale he could never have imagined. The story of his life and achievments are brilliantly described in this important biography.
I read Eva Gabrielsson's book first. Then I read Baksi's book. I had a difficult time with the flow of Mr. Baksi's book. I would not recommend it.
the man behind the phenominal trilogy is himself phenominal.
A fabulous book about Stieg Larsson. Only a friend could write. Its as compelling as his three novels of Lisbeth. A must read that will let you know where his ideas came from for his triology. Its a shame we will never read about Lisbeth again. She is and will always be my favorite heroine.
