Description

The author of the Millennium novels laid out the clues. Now a journalist is following them.

When 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 who’d done it - and on a Stockholm street at point-blank range. 

Internationally known for his fictional far-right villains, Larsson was well acquainted 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. Larsson’s archive was forgotten until journalist Jan Stocklassa was given exclusive access to the author’s secret project. 

In 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 could.

Commentaires

"Fascinating undercover work." (AudioFile magazine)

"Having gained exclusive access to Larsson's trove of research, Stocklassa presents an in-depth look into the investigation. Based on the findings, Swedish police now have a suspect for the first time in years. This well-crafted whodunit will keep readers engaged from start to finish.... This story is sure to gain international traction as the investigation into the Palme assassination heats up again." (Library Journal)

"Larsson buffs won't want to miss this one." (Publishers Weekly)

Might listen again

A dramatization to be sure, absolutely fascinating because it is real.
Good for a listen while driving, does require Quite a bit of focus

When does it start to get interesting?

There is a prior review that says you need to focus when you listen to this book. I'm going to add that this type of book is not for everyone. It is not a fast paced mystery. It plods to the discovery points. I only made it two hours in and can't go on.

So interesting. Very detailed.

This was fascinating. A great combination or story, history, and research. If you like details and to feel like someone is really giving you the full background, this is for you.

If you just want an exciting story without minutia and detail, this is NOT for you.

Not Satisfying

I generally prefer fiction and this was truly a work of non- fiction. it had exciting moments but ended without satisfaction or resolution. I purchased this to accompany the ebook.

Couldn’t put it down

I haven’t read Steig Larsen and was interested to read about him in a non- fiction piece. I was fascinated by the fact that Larsen researched Sweden’s Right Wing (who’d a thunk?) and the extent of his research. The presentation was gripping and I would listen to more books by the narrator.

Should Have Returned

I was looking forward to this since I've read all the other books of this type. But it was sluggish and just plain boring.
I can not recommend.

Prime Minister Murdered - 34 Years Still Unsolved

This book is intriguing and makes you wonder just how interconnected all the global issues are. Olaf Palmer and his wife are walking home from the theater, without any security detail, which is often the case. This night someone walks up behind him and shoots him at close range, killing him instantly. Then the killer runs up the stairs to the street above and disappears. The police investigate but find no evidence to connect to anyone. Stieg Larsson investigates the far right who hated Palmer but finds no conclusive evidence. Could it be a lone gunman? Or, is it more likely to be another country’s ‘hit squad’ out to silence Palmer because he was about to speak out against the selling of guns. So far there is no ending although the investigations continue. The publication of this book after 8 years of research has sparked additional investigation by Swedish police. The narrator, Ulf Bjorkland, is terrific as narrator. He makes the story move and pronounces the Swedish names and places correctly making the book flow. The author does a skillful job of weaving the notes left by Stieg Larsson into the investigation and again reminds us of just what the journalistic world lost with the early death of Larsson. If you like crime drama, this is a true life mystery.

bored me to sleep DNF

dreadfully boring, fell asleep three separate times. Finally Gave up. did not finish. I don't blame the narrator, he just read what he was given, it's the author's writing style, detailed to a fault, that bored me to sleep
