The world knows him as the author of three criminal novels, published soon after his untimely death: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels. But before he created Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist in a single burst of creativity, Stieg Larsson had lived a life every bit as exciting as his books. As an investigative journalist, Stieg Larsson persistently documented the activities of right-wing extremists whose power had been gaining momentum everywhere in the world. He was a man of high moral values and strong will, completely dedicated to his passion and prepared to risk his life to defend freedom and democracy. The film includes interviews with Larsson’s friends and colleagues, dramatised scenes from his life and never before seen archive footage.
