Stieg Larsson - The Man Who Played With Fire


STIEG LARSSON: THE MAN WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE details famed author Stieg Larsson’s legacy and life’s work. Creator and writer of the best-selling series “Millennium”, which has been adapted into several successful films, Larsson was a dedicated journalist and author whose fascinating and dramatic life has largely been unknown until now. He devoted his time to fight right wing extremism in the world and spreading the message that democracy is a right that needs to be fought for. The film includes interviews with people close to Larsson, as well as unique material from his private archive, re-enactments and never before seen archive footage.


Henrik Georgsson is the director behind the celebrated TV-series “The Bridge”. He has directed a significant amount of series such as “Wallander” and “Blue Eyes”. He studied documentary directing at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm, and most recently wrapped on the British Nordic-noir TV-series “Marcella” that is available on ITV and Netflix.
