Now almost exclusively known as the author of the bestselling Millennium Trilogy, as a professional journalist Stieg Larsson was an untiring crusader for democracy and equality. As a reporter and editor-in-chief on the journal Expo he researched the extreme right both in Sweden and at an international level. Collected here for the first time are essays and articles on right-wing extremism and racism, on violence against women and women’s rights, on homophobia, and honour killings.

His most important writings–perceptive, learned and committed texts–illustrate the breadth of his journalistic and political activities in connection with matters that were closest to his heart, and to which he devoted his life. Despite death threats and financial difficulties, Larsson never ceased to fight for and write about his most firmly held principles; it was his commitment to these which gave his bestselling novels their explosive force.

"Larsson's essay on the murders of two women in Sweden one the victim of abuse, the other of an honor killing however, is outraged reporting at its best." - from the Booklist Review in the OPAC record

This essay, the longest of all pieces in the collection, is enough reason for reading the book, particularly to explore the nature of a male-dominated world.

However, the other comment by Booklist, "...too many articles focusing on Swedish ploitics for American readers..." is entirely subjective and reflects the bias of the reviewer.

I would not assume - as does this reviewer - that intelligent Americans (not necessarily an oxymoron) would not be interested in the political events of another country; especially, as the topics are as germane to the current political and cultural American landscape as ever...
