A great collection of Stieg Larsson's articles at Expo over the years. He truly was a crusading journalist, always fighting for equality, for all minorities, especially against neo-nazis, and white supremacist parties in Sweden. In short, he was the real Mikael Blomkvist.

OK. I understand Larsson was an ardent crusader against the right wing. I'm with you, dude.

But ten consecutive essays tilting against the same windmills? OK, they are inded Neo Nazis, to be sure really repugnants, but one or two exemplary essays would do just dandy.

But his chronology of the development of this disturbing political subset in Europe is eerily parallel to the rise of the USA's Tea Party. Their world view scares me to death.

Larsson hits his stride when he hits the topics of women's

Una breve raccolta dello scambio d'e-mail avvenuto nel 2004 tra l'autore Stieg Larsson e l'editore di una delle case editrici più importanti della Svezia, la Norstedts. Questo scambio di lettere, oltre a farci conoscere i retroscena che precedono la pubblicazione di un libro (scambio e correzione dei testi, pubblicità, copertina, promozione interna ed estera, etc.), in questo caso della trilogia Millennium, è anche capace di incuriosirti e spingerti verso l'acquisto del libro discusso.

Libretto sostanzialmente inutile che per fortuna, mi sembra di aver capito, viene regalato - io l'ho preso in biblioteca.
Per chi è proprio digiuno del lavoro editoriale (che assomiglia molto al processo di tante altre cose, per esempio un film, una trasmissione radiofonica o televisiva ecc.), magari risulta interessante e divertente - un po' come sbirciare dal buco della serratura.
Che dire? Dietro il giallista di successo c'era una persona seria, preparata, appassionata,

E-book gratuito, edito da Marsilio (scaricabile da qui nel quale è proposto il carteggio avuto da Stieg con il proprio editore. Il periodo coperto è dal 2003 al 2004, fino a pochi giorni dalla sua prematura morte.
Lettura scorrevole ed interessante.

A bit dated, but a nice insight into Swedish politics and a really great excerpt from "The Debate on Honor Killings." Larsson rightly points out the hypocrisy in far right outrage over the killing of an immigrant woman in Sweden by her father and says every year Swedish men abuse and kill Swedish women. But when Swedish men kill Swedish women, they are not subjected to "cultural-anthropological scrutiny." He said that "instead of focusing on men's need to control situations, the violent treatmen ...more

No me gustó lo abandoné en la mitad cuando descubrí que con tres artículos sobre el mismo tema era suficiente. Eso dsí, aseguro que lo que está pasando con Trump era un a "tragedia anunciada".

This collection of articles from the author of the Millennium trilogy spans different decades of his work and touches on many of the same themes found in his fictional trilogy. While some stories are more compelling than others, overall I actually enjoyed reading these nonfiction articles more than his fiction.

Although it wasn't a book that made me want to stop everything to finish reading it, I did find his point of view interesting and still relevant decades after the original publication of

When Larrson wrote his fiction, it is obvious upon reading this book that he was writing from personal experience. His ant-racist, pro-women and pro-LBGT rights feelings are extremely clear in these essays, you can feel his passion on these subjects. There are several issues with this book, none of which are the author's fault, it's a posthumous collection. One problem is that the essays were written as individual articles, so that there is large amounts of repeated information. Secondly the art ...more

Stieg Larsson's The Expo Files is a collection of selected articles from multiple sources, but mostly from his contributions to the Expo Magazine. He crusaded against or tried to expose various unhealthy elements of Swedish culture and society. He was outspokenly opposed to the right wing extremism. He was against any policy that was anti-immigrants, anti-women's rights and against any ethnic group. His logic was clear and concise and he never avoided identifying individuals or particular groups ...more

Qué puedo decir... ha sido un viaje muy educativo en muchos sentidos, aunque hubo ocasiones en las que fue difícil avanzar, y en mi opinión fue error del compilador más que del escritor. Sin embargo, puede volver a disfrutar de la pasión y el compromiso que caracterizó a Larsson y nuevamente me puso en perspectiva, no sólo los países del tercer mundo tenemos problemas de violencia, lo que realmente sucede es que nos dejamos cegar por lo que creemos que puede ser perfecto, pero que en realidad só ...more

This book is a series of articles/news stories Stieg Larsson wrote. If you are getting this book expecting something like the Millennium Trilogy, then you will be disappointed. But you can see that he must have based the character of Mikael Blomkvist from the trilogy somewhat on himself. I was worried the material would be boring and news like, but I found it very readable and interesting. Some of the articles are better than others, but overall enjoyable. The entire book was only 243 pages so i ...more
I think I would have appreciated this more if I was more familiar with late 90s/early 2000s Swedish politics, but Larsson still does a great job of explaining it. I preferred his pieces about violence against women to the straight-up political stuff, but I can definitely see how this journalist wrote Män somm hatar kvinnor.

Stieg Larsson is primarily known for his novels about Mikael Blomqvist and Lisbeth Salander (which were all published after his death), but before that he was a crusading journalist and magazine editor. His journalistic writing shows all the skills he deployed in fiction, and many of the same themes. He campaigned against the abuse/degradation of women, racism and modern-day fascism.

A collection of articles from EXPO written by Steig Larsson, predominantly about the rise of Neo-facisim in Sweden. Larsson's journalistic writing is superb. I knew virtually nothing about the far right in Sweden before reading this book and I felt this hampered my overall engagement with the articles. However, having read them I am certainly better informed.

Great to hear Stieg Larrson voice again and I always learn something new every time I read something he wrote. I really enjoyed the last Expo 9001 miles to Beijing. I am still hopeful that we will get to read more of what he wrote to continue the Millennium series.

utile a soddisfare la curiosità di milioni di lettori. Godibile conoscere il dietro le quinte della realizzazione di una serie di libri di grande successo. Triste la conclusione con la morte dell'autore.

Este libro es una recopilaci�n de art�culos escritos por Stieg Larsson en su revista Expo. All� se ve a un periodista valiente que no duda en meter la pluma en la llaga para denunciar injusticias. Me doy cuenta de que Larsson era, adem�s de un excelente novelista, un excelente periodista.

Meh...too dry for me to get through. Expected more of an actual story, maybe my fault for being an impulse buyer and not researching what the book was about first.

Interesting, because of the issues Mr. Larsson addresses.

Es un buen trabajo periodistico sobre los conflictos raciales, religiosos y culturales a los cuales nos enfrentamos, sin mayor conciencia de la sociedad.

Sarebbero finite nella spazzatura alla voce "fuffa" se il buon Larsson non fosse morto. Un minimo di valore documentario ce l'hanno... un minimo però.

Interesting to read Stieg's non -fiction articles and gave insight into his ideology. That being said I read more about Swedish/European politics than I ever wanted to know!
