Story of an extra ordinary man: Stieg Larsson
30 November 2019 | by mariadulevaSee all my reviews

As a big fan of Millenium trilogy, a documentary book of Jan Stoklassa and everything around Stieg as a person, I really liked the movie. It was very informative about Stieg's life, habits and way of thinking. Many real videos and comments of people who knew him and worked with him was very fascinating. Stieg had very concentrated and hardworking personality. Highly recommend this movie to people who like the Millenium trilogy, and especially to these who are in love with all that mystery if the characters in books are real people and organizations!
