Meet the Author - David Lagercrantz

David Lagercrantz was born in 1962, and is an acclaimed author and journalist. In 2015 The Girl in the Spider's Web, his continuation of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, became a global bestseller, with worldwide sales of 2.5 million copies and was No.1 in 20 countries. The Quercus UK edition has sold 500,000 copies across all formats. He is also the author of the acclaimed and bestselling I am Zlatan Ibramhimovic, and Fall of Man in Wilmslow, a novel about Alan Turing.
Lagercrantz has spoken of the importance of Larsson’s legacy. “Stieg Larsson was a master at creating complex stories with a lot of different plotlines and that was something I was determined to live up to,” he said in a statement. “[His writing style] is down to earth and unaffected. But there is a kind of journalistic authoritativeness about his work. I realised early on how idiotic it would be for me just to imitate him. This is my own prose.” 

And the man behind the series itself - Stieg Larsson

Stieg Larsson, born in 1954, was a  journalist. He was the editor-in-chief of the magazine Expo from 1999 and was one of the world’s leading experts on anti-democratic, right-wing extremist and Nazi organisations.
He died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2004, soon after delivering the manuscripts for the three crime novels which are The Millennium Trilogy, which has gone on to sell more than eighty million copies worldwide.
Tragically Larsson did not live to enjoy the phenomenon his work has become.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.

When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
