Now almost exclusively known as the author of the bestselling Millennium Trilogy, Stieg Larsson was first and foremost a professional journalist and an untiring crusader for democracy and equality.Collected in English for the first time, the articles in this volume explore the human rights issues that formed the ideological foundation of his explosive trio of novels. Before he ever began his cycle of novels about the travails of Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, Stieg Larsson used the pulpit of the media to denounce right-wing extremism throughout Europe. A co-founder of the influential journal EXPO and its primary editor for many years, Larsson spoke out passionately against many of the worst crimes against women, minorities, and other disenfranchised communities. These unflinching articles showcase Larsson’s spare style and sly humor as he dissects many instances of persistent anti-humanist behavior and politics. Written with the urgency and economy of someone who knew that there is no time to waste when it comes to fighting the forces of bigotry, sexism, and racism, The EXPO Files is required reading not just for fans of the Millennium Trilogy, but everyone who applauds writers with the courage to denounce evil when they see it.
