Stieg Larsson - About the Author

One of the hottest books this summer is The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. It's the third novel in the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy.

I've read the first two in the trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire) and am really looking forward to reading the final one. (Yes, even library directors have to wait on the request list!)

Larsson, whose books were published posthumously, is quite a man of mystery. Articles have been written widely, and even his death has been followed by controversy about his estate.

This past Monday, The Daily Mail, published an article about Stieg Larsson. It is written by Kurdo Baski, a friend of Larsson's and the author of a forthcoming biography of him. Baski provides some possible insight into the origins of his books.
