The Stieg Larsson Phenomenon

    Listen

    Hour 1

    If you’ve been on bus or sat on a beach this summer, chances are you’ve noticed numerous people reading one of deceased writer Stieg Larsson’s bestselling trilogy —  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire and the Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.  In this hour of Radio Times we’ll talk about the books, the character and the author who died four years ago – before he saw his novels rise to the top of the best-seller charts.  Our guests are EDWARD KASTENMEIER, vice President  and executive editor for Vintage/Anchor and editor of Stieg Larsson’s books in paperback, and crime fiction writer and book critic SARAH WEINMAN.
