The Mysterious Stieg Larsson; UPDATE

By all accounts, Stieg Larsson was a very private person, so there are few clues to what inspired his writing. This week, the UK paper, The Daily Mail published a piece about him with an attention-grabbing headline, “How a brutal rape and a lifelong burden of guilt fuelled Girl with the Dragon Tattoo writer Stieg Larsson” (it’s also on the Huffington Post today). The story is by Kurdo Baski, who has also written a bio of Larsson, due out this fall, from MacLehose Press, a division of the British publisher Quercus, also Larsson’s UK publisher.

UPDATE: Thanks to a comment from a reader, we’ve learned that this book will be published in the US as Stieg Larsson: Our Days in Stockholm, Pegasus (December 6, 2010) 978-1605981741; $25.
