Stieg Larsson is best known for his phenomenally successful series of novels, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. The books have sold some 80 million copies world-wide. However, Larsson’s main pre-occupation was fighting the rise of fascism in Sweden.
