Hmmm. These books have hacked their way into my thought-processes – into what and how I witness. At Summerfolk this year (http://www.summerfolk.org/) There was a band of blonde swedish banshee sisters who mesmerised us all – (Baskery – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ingmySBj4Zs). Distortion banjo, kick drums, a huge stand-up bass, and a lead singer who leans on the music like it’s a terribly terribly addictive drug. I saw Lisbeth Salander everywhere.
Who was Steig Larsson, and why has he died?
