This Award winning writer and journalist left behind a literary reputation and fortune, hard for anyone to parallel. The state of his estate is now the topic of much discussion, primarily because of the financial feud ensued by it among the writer’s family and his girlfriend of many years.

Having started his career quite early as a science fiction writer, Stieg soon shifted over to the crime genre and created some extraordinary novels with dark plots and interesting twists, much like his personal life. An editor of many magazines and a writer of many novels, Stieg’s greatest contribution was the"Millennium series", that won him the most recognition and money.

Although, there have been attempts of negotiation between the two parties, there has been no positive results! But, despite the nasty headlines caused due to Steig's fortune, his readers still continue to read and enjoy his novels just as much as they always did!
