The author of the Millennium novels laid out the clues. Now a journalist is following them.

When Stieg Larsson died, the author of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had been working on a true mystery that out-twisted his Millennium novels: the assassination on February 28, 1986, of Olof Palme, the Swedish prime minister. It was the first time in history that a head of state h

Plus interviews were done in person or partially verbally over the landline phone. There's no fiction described in the book in those methods. That's a very old-school method that really works even today with internet use as some things can't be digitized. (less)

Certainly the Swedish secret service are probably right. How you define Lisbeth's father depends really on whether you believe that the Soviets were actually left or whether by the time you reach the end of their days many of them could be on either the right or left of the spectrum. Putin, for example, was head of the KGB but there is nothing particularly left or Communist about his government. I would say most - after the first book - are indefinable. (less)

Švédský novinář se dostal k archivu Stiega Larssona, ve kterém se ukrývá výsledek Larssonovy mnohaleté práce, kdy se snažil odhalit pozadí vraždy Olofa Palmeho. Nám ve střední Evropě se možná těžko chápe, jaké trauma to pro Švédy a Švédsko stále je. Ale je to možná nejbolavější místo jejich nedávné historie.

Stocklassa se rozhodl jednou provždy tu otázku vyřešit: Kdo zabil Olofa Palmeho? Kdo si vraždu objednal? A proč se to za těch třicet let nepovedlo vyšetřit?

Kniha Odkaz Stiega Larssona je do

Nevím, co mě to napadlo půjčit si v knihovně tuhle věc - a nevím to ani po přečtení. Asi jak jsem propadla kouzlu absyntovek, slibovala jsem si podobný čtenářský zážitek i tady, ale nekonal se. Ještě před půlkou jsem to chtěla odložit, pak jsem se hecla, posledních asi sto stran už se mi četlo snáz, ale to mohlo být taky jen vidinou brzkého dočtení. Jako člověka, který nemá moc šajnu o zahraniční politice a knihy Stiega Larssona asi nikdy nečetl a jestli četl, tak zapomněl, mě tenhle titul zkrát ...more

Tato kniha je literaturou faktu, kterou by milovala Lisbeth Salanderová. Mnoho jmen. Hodně myšlenkových postupů. Ale i adrenalin – o kterém si můžete být jistí, že byl opravdový.
