This is the perfect aperitif to the Millennium Trilogy – a stunning insight into the author whose life was stranger than fiction!

His best-selling books are violent, terrifying, brilliantly written and have sold millions of copies around the world, but Stieg Larsson was not there to witness any of their international success. That his fame is entirely posthumous demonstrates the dizzying speed with which his star has risen. However, when one looks a little deeper at the man behind these phenomenal novels, it becomes clear that Larsson’s life would have been remembered as extraordinary, even if his Millennium trilogy had never been published. Larsson was a workaholic: a keen political activist, photographer, graphic designer, a respected journalist and editor of numerous science fiction magazines ... and at night, to relax after work, he wrote crime novels. As the world now knows, he had completed his third book, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, by the time of his death at just 50 years of age. In The Man Who Left Too Soon, top crime fiction journalist Barry Forshaw gives us a fascinating insight into the life and works of this difficult, brilliant and multifaceted man.

"Forshaw identifies as the key element to the novels’ success the “emotional connection” between Lisbeth and Mikael Blomkvist, rather than the “nigh-operatic outbursts of violence and massively labyrinthine plotting”. Here he comes close, I think, to explaining their extraordinary popularity."
