review 1: I'm not a fan of non-fiction/memoirs/biographies but I was given this book by my boss after he found out I'd read the Millenium Trilogy. I'm glad he shared it with me. Short and touching, it's made me view Larsson and his trilogy in a new light. I had no idea he was such a passioante activist or that his life was endangered by his work. Truly inspiring stuff...except for the fact that it sounds like he worked himself to death. Recommended to fans of Larsson, if you're looking for a brief insight to his life.
review 2: I was interested to read this book by a close friend and colleague the Kurd, Kurdo Baksi. I think what I learned more than anything about Larsson himself, was the extreme Neo Nazi movement in Sweden. The racism there shocked me, you simply don't
... more hear that much about Sweden and this problem. Of course it plays a very important part in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". In fact much of Larsson's causes permeate his books, and you get some insight into him. But not a lot, a very secretive man about his private life. It is a short book, and I'm glad I read it. less

OK. Stieg wrote and smoked a lot, slept little and died at 50. No big insights.
Well, I wonder if it is in czech or slovak translation! I must find it out!
Very good read. It's a great account of his life and interesting.
intersting and strange, gave you some insight into Stieg Larsson.
I am reading this after finishing the trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
