Stieg Larssons arkivNyckeln till Palmemordet doc Æ Kindle Edition ✓ The author of the Millennium novels laid out the clues Now a journalist is following themWhen Stieg Larsson died the author of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had been working on a true mystery that out twisted his Millennium novels the assassinWho’d done it and on a Stockholm street at point blank rangeInternationally known for his fictional far right villains Larsson was well acuainted with their real life counterparts and documented extremist activities throughout the world For years he’d been amassing evidence that linked their terrorist acts to what he called “one of the most astounding murder cases” he’d ever covered L The Man Who Played with Fire by Jan Stocklassa is a true crime book which gives us comprehensive details about the assassination of the then Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986It is very strange and uncommon that the murder of a head of state remains unsolved for decades After getting interested in the case the author sets about trying to solve it During his research he comes across the research done by journalist turned author of the Millenium series of novels Stieg Larsson when he was alive Jan then uses both their researches to bring the case to a satisfactory conclusion though not the evidence that could be held up in a court of lawAs it stands the case is officially closed It is sad that the line of research Jan took wasn't really followed by the detectives assigned to the case After all he has generated some pretty solid leads which if followed might have turned out different results than the official oneThis book has got me interested in the life and works of Stieg Though neither have I read any of his books nor watched their movie adaptations they are now on my TBR and to watch lists respectivelyVerdict Highly recommended

Arsson’s archive was forgotten until journalist Jan Stocklassa was given exclusive access to the author’s secret projectIn The Man Who Played with Fire Stocklassa collects the pieces of Larsson’s true crime puzzle to follow the trail of intrigue espionage and conspiracy begun by one of the world’s most famous thriller writers Together they set out to solve a mystery that no one else coul The description starts hard boiled as true crime can get with tantalizing lost research of authorjournalist Stieg Larsson on the ultimate cold case the assassination Prime Minister Olof Palme February 28 1986 That's one hell of a pitch and I couldn't resist taking a crack at it The reality is Jan Stocklassa's globe trotting multi lingual adventure has less to with Steig than catching the bug of citizen investigation in the vein of Michelle McNamara with roughly the same results not much Jan's antics involve a few interesting characters like the over sold mysterious Leahta who boldly inserts herself the case Was there a multinational South African assassination attempt? I'd probably hedge my bets no Instead of uncovering the truth Stocklassa presents an interesting but less compelling alternative narrative Certainly the actors were capable but instead felt like lonely old men who society has forgotten looking to regale any listener be it a foreign journalist or mysterious attractive younger woman Stocklassa chases the ghost of Larsson at every corner asking What would Stieg do? and Stocklassa seems intent on name dropping latter portions of the book to remind us why we bought the book Had this been simply a roleplay exercise this would have fizzled out but Jan has caught a clinical grade case of the whodunits and leads him to do just about anything to get close to his targetsAlso interesting is the mild controversy over the novel here in the US included it with its Prime book club which ruffled the feathers of conservatives as any book that makes the right wing in this case across the globe involving fascist groups with NaziNeo Nazi ties clearly the work of the shaking fist at sky liberals Of course this book has very little to do with the United States sans cold war geopolitics or has little to say about Trumpism sans general statements berating racismxenophobia Anyone complaining hasn't read it or has paper thin skin There's a greater irony of the outrage but it's not worth unpacking hereEven if the book is tangentially about Stieg we do get a peek in the paranoid shadowy spook filled cabals of right wing power brokers that made up Stieg's Millennium Trilogy and the story is interesting even if I don't buy the final conclusion To circle back to Michelle McNamara's I'll Be Gone in the Dark the victory wasn't unearthing groundbreaking clues or finding community in a group of like minded wannabes If Palme's killer is caught it likely won't be Stieg or Jan's work but rather renewing interest in a cold case to motivate the pros to finish

Stieg Larssons arkivNyckeln till PalmemordetThe author of the Millennium novels laid out the clues Now a journalist is following themWhen Stieg Larsson died the author of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had been working on a true mystery that out twisted his Millennium novels the assassination on February 28 1986 of Olof Palme the Swedish prime minister It was the first time in history that a head of state had been murdered without a clue In this uniue book—mixing true crime political assassination espionage and journal entries—Jan Stocklassa recounts events surrounding one of Sweden’s most baffling cold cases On the evening of February 28th 1986 Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme was out with his wife when he was shot in the back and died The assailant fled the scene and police were forced to cobble together eyewitness accounts though they remained uite flimsy Struggling journalist Stieg Larsson took up the case when he was roused from bed and began trying to piece together what he knew Sightings and evidence from the scene led some of believe that Victor Gunnarsson might be a likely suspect Gunnarsson was well known to Larsson who had a history of working to uncover and topple those on the political right with his strong articles However Gunnarsson’s guilt soon wavered and the country was clueless as to what might have happened Larsson used his intuitive nature and some friends in the British press to help him scope out new leads including some ties to other right wing organisations Larsson’s primary focus was a man with strong ties to the South African government at the time still strong in their apartheid movement something that Palme had been vocally against during his time in Swedish politics When the case went cold and Larsson could go no further he turned to writing what would become his most popular Millennium Trilogy for which he is best known by many readers When Larsson dies soon thereafter Jan Stocklassa was given all his research on the Palme case and thus began a resurgence in the fact checking and pushing for answers In the latter portion of the book Stocklassa moves away from laying out what Larsson offered up and followed new and decisive leads to find a killer in a case that had long gone cold but was never far from the minds of Swedish officials Using these leads and some of his own dabbling into new technology not available at the time Stocklassa offers readers a new suspect with strong evidence to support the claims In an investigation that Stieg Larsson began on March 1 1986 Jan Stocklassa may have finally locked in an answer though the authorities have yet to act on everything in this book Highly entertaining as well as informative Stocklassa and Larsson presents loads of prevalent information and leave the reader with a strong sense that the case might finally have an answer Recommended to those who love a good true crime mystery as well as the reader who wishes to learn much about Stieg Larsson before any talk of dragon tattoos came to lightI was eager to read this book as soon as it crossed my radar There is much to learn about the case especially since I knew nothing about it from the outset Stocklassa does a wonderful job of laying out the basics and using Stieg Larsson’s early notes and work to give the reader the proper context From there through a series of formats the reader is plunged into the middle of the investigation Stocklassa admits to using first hand documentation which further strengthens the Larsson angle of the entire investigation The case is full of suspects and branch off possibilities—much like a strong murder mystery—with espionage and the murder of many in a varie
