Larsson
Description
"He was both a dream and a nightmare to work with. He was not only involved in the struggle against intolerance, he was obsessed with it" are the words used to describe the now world-famous author Stieg Larsson by his friend and close colleague, Kurdo Baksi, who himself was a prominent character in The Millennium Trilogy. During Larsson's career as a journalist he was a crucial figure in the battle against racism and for democracy in Sweden as one of the founders of the anti-fascist magazine Expo. Baksi first met Larsson in 1992, triggering an intense friendship and a fruitful, but challenging, working relationship.in this candid memoir, Baksi answers the questions a multitude of Larsson's fans have already asked about his childhood, the recurring death tretas, his insomnia, his vices, and his feminism--so evident in his books-- as well as his own personal dogma. What was he like as an individual and author? Who provided the inspiration for his now-immortal characters (Baksi is one of the few who appears in the trilogy as himself), and of course, who was Lisbeth Salander?
