Just ahead of its premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, The Match Factory has released an intoxicating trailer for Henrik Georgsson’s Stieg Larsson: The Man Who Played With Fire.
Based on the trailer for the new documentary, Larsson, writer of the ever popular Millennium novels, is much more than a renowned author. In fact, from first sight, this film appears to reveal that Larsson had an obsession with political groups (mainly right-wing extremists and neo-Nazis) and their migration throughout the world.
It is this part of Larsson’s life that appears to take center stage, and it will be most interesting to see just how much information/access the creators were granted as they unveil a secret part of the late writer. And while Stieg himself isn’t here to defend his beliefs, by way of the film, it appears that his fight for democracy will live on through one medium that helped make him a household name.
