Stieg Larsson

So I found out today that Stieg Larsson was a communist turned terrorist-trainer (he trained a female terrorist group to launch grenades somewhere in the world), turned right-wing extremist.

Wow, I mean, what a switch, from communism to right-wing extreme!
But, again, his post-mortem immense success with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the rest in the series, proves that people truly don’t care about an author’s personal beliefs and that good writing still stands.
Which can only be good news.

  1. After leafing through "The Girl…" series I refuse to read them. His biography is an extra reason to avoid these books.

  2. That just proves the opposite of my conclusion. Well, one should never generalise, I suppose.
