Book Talk: Gone Too Soon
I am currently reading the wildly popular The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is the first book in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy. All three books are on the New York Times Best Sellers List in one format or another. Did you know the first book almost did not get published in the States? Hard to believe when there are 27 million copies in print according to London newspaper, The Independent.
Born in 1954, Stieg was one-year-old when he was sent to live with his grandparents in Sweden. His grandfather, Severin Boström, was imprisoned in a work camp during WWII for his anti-fascist beliefs. Stieg listened to his grandfather’s stories and looked up to him as a role model.
