Short biography
Stieg Larsson (15 August 1954 - 9 November 2004) was a Swedish journalist and writer, active in left wing politics. He was born in Skelleftehamn outside Skellefteå, Sweden as Karl Stig-Erland Larsson. He is notable for his authorship of the Millennium series of crime novels which are being successfully published posthumously. Larsson was initially a political activist for the Kommunistiska Arbetareförbundet (Communist Workers League), a photographer, and one of Sweden's leading science fiction fans. In politics he was the editor of the Swedish Trotskyist journal Fjärde internationalen. He also wrote regularly for the weekly Internationalen. As a science fiction fan, he was co-editor or editor of several fanzines, including Sfären, Fijagh! and others; in 1978-1979 he was President of the largest Swedish science fiction fan club, Skandinavisk Förening för Science Fiction (SFSF). Larsson worked as a graphic designer at the largest Swedish news agency, Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT) between 1977 and 1999. Larsson died in Stockholm at the age of 50 of a massive heart attack.
