NY Times Looks at Stieg Larsson’s Life and Legacy

In What's the Buzz by Edward Nawotka

stieg_larssonBy Edward Nawotka Stieg Larsson is nothing short of a phenomenon and the wait for the third volume of his popular Millennium trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, due in US stores this month the most widely anticipated book since  Harry Potter, and “the early 1840s, when [Americans] thronged the docks in New York, hailing incoming ships for news of Little Nell in Charles Dickens’s Old Curiosity Shop,” wrote Charles McGrath in this weekend’s New York Times magazine.

The piece goes on to explore Larsson’s life and work and is well worth a read. It is the most thorough examination of his legacy that I’ve yet seen. It’s also a nice bookend to the very first article we published here at Publishing Perspectives — The Woman Who Fought Back — a little more than a year ago.
