Karl Stig-Erland "Stieg" Larsson was a Swedish journalist, activist and writer. He remained a leftist throughout his life with his journalism encompassing communist and anti-fascist publications. He also independently researched on right-wing extremism. His work on fictions, however, brought him immense popularity. His crime novels of the ‘Millennium trilogy’ published posthumously earned him international accolades and was adapted into films. The first of the series, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ was selected in 2005 as the best Nordic crime novel. Publishers Weekly’ mentions ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest’, the third novel of the series, as the top selling book in the US in 2010. Internationally he was charted as the second best-selling author in 2008. Though he could not witness the colossal success of his novels as he succumbed to a heart attack in 2004, his creations continue to lead the best seller chart. He changed his first name from ‘Stig’ to ‘Stieg’ to avoid confusion with another author Stig Larsson who happened to be his friend. He received several awards during his lifetime and also posthumously. He remains the first writer whose e-books sale crossed over one million counts on Amazon.com.
