Stieg Larsson was a tireless campaigner against fascism in a nation where murder is the favoured tool of neo-Nazi thugs who wish to silence their opponents. He and his partner Eva Gabrielsson lived in constant fear for their lives, and saw several fellow activists killed by extremists. When a friend of theirs was found shot dead in a stairwell, police raided the killers' hideout and found photographs of Stieg and Eva - chillingly, they were the next targets. In order to produce the definitive biography of one of the true literary giants of the modern era, Jan-Erik Pettersson has interviewed virtually everyone of note, from Eva to Stieg's close family, and even some individuals who have never spoken publicly of their connection to Stieg before.
