Passersby are invited to chose from a menu of selections by this Swedish journalist, novelist and feminist, the author of the internationally renowned detective novel "Millenium series" trilogy featuring hacker anti-heroine Lisbeth Salander. The selection will then be read to them.

All of Larsson's books were published after his sudden death from a heart attack in 2004.

"Salander leaned back against the pillow and followed the conversation with a smile. She wondered why she, who had such difficulty talking about herself with people of flesh and blood, could blithely reveal her most intimate secrets to a bunch of completely unknown freaks on the Internet."

from "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest"

 

 “Much stronger boys in her class soon learned that it could be quite unpleasant to fight with that skinny girl. Unlike other girls in the class, she never backed down, and she would not for a second hesitate to use her fists or any weapon at hand to protect herself. She went around with the attitude that she would rather be beaten to death than take any shit.”

from "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"

    I still don’t believe that stieg is not between us anymore but still he is going to be remembered by every fan of him. I have been through many of his novels that are worth of reading them.
