Stieg Larsson (1954-2004) was a Swedish author who is best known for the Millennium series, a crime fiction series that includes the incredibly popular The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. During his lifetime, he edited periodicals and wrote some non-fiction books in Swedish. He spent his life researching right-wing extremism. Larsson himself was a communist.

It wasn’t until after his death from a heart attack in 2004 that his estate found his unpublished manuscripts and decided to have them published. Below is a list of Stieg Larsson’s fictional published works in chronological order and in order of when they were originally published in Swedish:
