Response to CrispyQ (Reply #16)

18. It's been years since I read the "The Millennium Trilogy" ("Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", et al),

which I enjoyed and found definitely intriguing. Part of what Steig Larsson touched on in the series was the 1986 assasination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme. If you have any interest in that aspect of the story, I'd like to recommend another trilogy by a Swedish author which focuses solely on that event:

Story of a Crime by Leif G W Persson
1. Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End (2010)
2. Another Time, Another Life (2011)
3. Free Falling, As If in a Dream (2014)


I found this trilogy to be absolutely mind-blowing! The books are very long (around 600 pages each) and convoluted, not easy reading at all, and definitely not to everyone's taste. But I loved them much more than the Steig Larsson trilogy, they made a much deeper impression.

On the other hand, you probably ought to catch up on your to-do list before you take me up on this recommendation...
