Dorte has kindly explained the relationships between Astrid Lindgren’s creations, Kalle Blomqvist and Pippi Longstocking, and Stieg Larsson’s creations Mikael Blomqvist and the memorable Lisbeth Salander here.


I was interested to read here that Karin Alvtegen, just nominated for an Edgar for best novel for Missing, is the grandniece of Astrid Lindgren

I think Lisbeth, the adult Pippi Longstocking, could have fitted in very well in the only Karin Alvtegen book I have read, Betrayal.


You can find an excellent summary of the numerous posts concerning Lisbeth Salander collected together by Maxine of Petrona here.
