Focusing on the sexualized violence of Stieg Larsson's bestselling Millennium trilogy - including the novels, Swedish film adaptations, and Hollywood blockbusters - this collection of essays puts Larsson's work into dialogue with Scandinavian and Anglophone crime novels by writers including Jo Nesb , H kan Nesser, Mo Hayder and Val McDermid.
"This is an excellent addition to the growing body of critical literature dealing with cross-cultural developments in crime fiction. Larsson is a controversial writer, and one of the real strengths of this collection is the way it showcases critical debate about some of the most difficult aspects of contemporary crime fiction - its representation of sexual violence; its underlying socio-political agendas and its moral-ethical substance; and the ways in which audiences respond to a genre that is by turns conventional, clichéd, subversive and deeply uncomfortable."
