He’s famous for composing the “Millennium trilogy” of crime novels, which were released posthumously. Larsson dwelt much of his life in Stockholm and worked there in the area of journalism so when an unbiased research worker of right-wing extremism. He was the second best selling writer on earth for 2008, behind Khaled Hosseini. Sales for the chain had reached 73 million copies world-wide from the end of 2012, as well as the novels continue to sell well now.

On his twelfth birthday, Larsson was given a typewriter as a birthday gift by his parents. Larsson’s first attempts at writing fiction weren’t in the genre of offense, but instead science fiction. In his first fanzines, 1972–74, he printed a number of early short stories, while submitting others to other semi professional or recreational magazines. He was co-editor or editor of several science fiction fanzines, including Sfren and FIJAGH!; in 1978–79, he was president of the biggest Swedish science fiction fan club, Skandinavisk Frening fr Science Fiction (SFSF). An accounts of the interval in Larsson’s life, as well as in-depth info on his fanzine writing and short stories, is a part of the biographical essays composed by Larsson’s buddy John-Henri Holmberg in The Tattooed Girl, by Holmberg with Dan Burstein and Arne De Keijzer, 2011. In early June 2010, manuscripts for two such stories, along with fanzines with a couple of others, were noted in the Swedish National Library (to which this substance was given several years before, mostly from the Alvar Appeltofft Memorial Foundation, which works to additional science fiction fandom in Sweden). This discovery of what was called “unknown” works by Larsson caused significant marketing.

1Spent part of 1977 in Eritrea, training a squad of female Eritrean People's Liberation Front guerrillas in the use of grenade launchers.
2In May 2008, it was announced that a 1977 will, found soon after Larsson's death, declared his wish to leave his assets to the Umeå branch of the Communist Workers League. As the will was unwitnessed, it was not valid under Swedish law, with the result that all of Larsson's estate, including future royalties from book sales, went to his father and brother.
3Once remarked to a colleague that he would like to see stories about famous children's literature characters when they had grown up. His novels appear to have put this into practice. His hero, Mikael Blomkvist, is named for Kalle Blomkvist (AKA Bill Bergson in English translations), a child detective appearing in novels by Astrid Lindgren. The heroine, Lisbeth Salander, sounds as if she was named, at least in part, after Blomkvist's companion Eva-Lotta Lisander. She was also named for a real-life rape victim Larsson knew. She is modeled in most other respects after another Lindgren character, Pippi Longstocking. Both girls are natural redheads who frequently outsmart authority figures who underestimate them. Salander also puts the name "V. Kulla" on her second apartment, a reference to Longstocking's home Villa Killekulla.
4Witnessed a rape when he was 15, and was helpless to stop it. This event haunted him for the rest of his life. The girl being raped was named Lisbeth, which he later used as the name of the heroine on his Millenium trilogy. Sexual violence against women is also a recurring theme in his work.
5Finished his so-called Millennium Trilogy shortly before his death in 2004. All three novels were published posthumously. He had finished three-quarters of a fourth book before his death and had notes for two more and had planned a series of ten.
