Karl Stig-Erland Larsson (15 August 1954 – 9 November 2004), who wrote professionally as Stieg Larsson, was a Swedish journalist and writer.
At his death, Stieg Larsson left three unpublished novels that made up the Millenium trilogy: the first - Män som hatar kvinnor ("Men who hate women"), published in English as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"; the second - "Flickan som lekte med elden" (The Girl Who Played with Fire); the third novel "Luftslottet som sprängdes" ("The air castle that was blown up"), published in English as "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest".

It became a posthumous best-seller in several European countries as well as in the United States. He was the second best-selling author in the world in 2008, behind Khaled Hosseini. By March 2010, his "Millennium series" had sold 27 million copies in more than 40 countries.
