While this is interesting info on the man, I'm wondering what it has to do with the web page. There isn't even a link to the page that I can find.

Yeah, neither do I.

Well, it doesn't seem to be now but when I posted the comment the topic was "Stieg Larsson Official Page", and NOT Stieg Larsson.

When I took a minute to add a wiki for Stieg Larsson the title, by default it seems, created itself. I did not notice it until you brought it to my attention at which point I edited it to reflect my intent. I like the fact that wikis, like many options on Lunch.com, can be works in progress. Initially I was intimidated about putting information out there as I felt it had to be "the best" from the start. Now I enter a few things while I have a cup of coffee and then come back as time allows. The site is very organic in this respect, growing and changing with our UGC.

User generated content, the basis on which social network sites are built. Facebook is the most striking example. Watching the reactions of the creators of Facebook in the movie The Social Network as they witnessed the count on how many viewers or members were being added was enticing.

Ah, that explains the mystery now, lol. I enjoy UGC sites. They are always so fun as places for collaboration. :)

This communication among us is exactly what is the purpose and the need on Lunch.

From Wiki:

At his death, Larsson left behind manuscripts of three completed but unpublished novels in a series. He wrote them for his own pleasure after returning home from his job in the evening, making no attempt to get them published until shortly before his death. The first was published in Sweden in 2005 as Män som hatar kvinnor ("Men who hate women"), published in English as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It was awarded the prestigious Glass Key award as the best Nordic crime novel in 2005. His second novel, Flickan som lekte med elden (The Girl Who Played with Fire), received the Best Swedish Crime Novel Award in 2006. The third novel in the Millennium trilogy, Luftslottet som sprängdes ("The air castle that was blown up"), published in English as The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, was published in the United States in May 2010.

Larsson left about three quarters of a fourth novel on a notebook computer, now possessed by his partner, Eva Gabrielsson; synopses or manuscripts of the fifth and sixth in the series, which he intended to contain an eventual total of ten books, may also exist.[7]

The Swedish film production company Yellow Bird has produced film versions of the Millennium Trilogy, co-produced with The Danish film production company Nordisk Film and TV company, which were released ...
