Stieg Larsson is not only a crime writer and fighter for democracy; he is also in a league of his own. He makes tourists to go on pilgrimages to Stockholm for the purpose of participating in Stockholm City Museum’s guided “Millennium Walks”, where you can walk in the trail of Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, main characters in The Millennium Trilogy. Even though he only wrote three books starring the protagonists before his tragic death in a heart-attack in 2004, his heroes has risen to a huge popularity in both the books and movies based on them.
