Larsson was a workaholic, a keen political activist, a photographer, a graphic designer, a respected journalist, and editor of numerous science-fiction magazines. And at night, to relax after work, he wrote crime novels. As the world now knows, he had completed his third book, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, by the time of his death at just 50 years of age.
In The Man Who Left Too Soon, top crime-fiction journalist Barry Forshaw gives us a fascinating insight into the life and works of this difficult, brilliant, and multifaceted man.

No, no, no!
Fans of the Millenium trilogy, lovers of Lisbeth, do not get this book! You might think you are going to learn about "The Life and Works of Stieg Larsson" and get a clue as to whether his life partner might write a sequel but what you get is trivia about the publishers and the translators and a totally redundant retelling of the stories of the 3 books. Why? Noone who chooses this biography will not have read Stieg Larsson's books and he told the story a thousand times better than Barry Forshaw. I am really sorry that I downloaded this and I doubt if I will listen till the end.
