The fascinating stories behind what have been rightly called the "hottest books on the planet": The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Through insightful commentary and revealing interviews, you will enter the unique world of Lisbeth Salander, Mikael Blomkvist---and of Stieg Larsson himself---discovering the fascinating real-life experiences and incidents involving Swedish politics, violence against women, and neo-Nazis that are at the heart of Larsson's work. John-Henri Holmberg, a Swedish author and close friend of Larsson for more than three decades, provides a unique insider's look into the secrets of the author's imaginative universe, his life, and his ideas for future books---including the mysterious "fourth book" in the series, which Larsson had started but not finished at the time of his death. Included within are answers to compelling questions on every Larsson fan's mind: · What makes the Lisbeth Salander character so unique and memorable? Why have so many people from all backgrounds and with all kinds of tastes found The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so riveting? · What are the speculations---and what is the truth---about Stieg Larsson's tragic death at age fifty, just before the publication of his novels, and the bitter battle over his legacy? · What changes were made in the plots and translations of the novels after Larsson's death---and why? · How did Larsson's early interest in science fiction and American and British crime writers feed into his creation of the Millennium trilogy? · What were Larsson's ideas for the fourth book, and are there any clues to the plots he imagined for his ten-book series? Will we meet Lisbeth's twin sister, Camilla, or any of her other seven siblings that Zalachenko tells her she has? · Does Lisbeth Salander give feminism a new definition? · What will happen in the contentious battle between Stieg Larsson's life partner, Eva Gabrielsson, and his father and brother over the future of the books, as well as the billion dollars at stake in his legacy? · Who are the emerging Swedish crime writers we should pay attention to now? · And much, much more!

"Life imitates art far more than art imitates life," wrote Oscar Wilde in the late 19th century. For decades, advertisers have known this phenomenon in art to be the case. For the tattoo enthusiast, it is even truer, as the time spent near an image is an important factor that determines one's future. In his inspiring new book, Tattoo Coach Cary Weldy takes the reader on an astonishing adventure to identify the twelve key elements of art that create one's life experience. The colors, shapes, patterns, symbols, quantity, and location of tattoos dramatically affect what energies the tattooed person will likely attract. Learn how universal meanings of symbols have a far greater impact than the personal stories ascribed to tattoos. Just as being around a friend dramatically influences one's emotions, thoughts, and biochemistry, tattoos have the same impact - only much stronger. Using scientific studies and dozens of interviews with inked enthusiasts, Weldy makes the case that art emits various energies that create resonance and synchronicity, thereby attracting the energies that create one's life experiences. Can the butterfly or dragonfly tattoo attract continuous changes in relationships, jobs, or homes, much like the butterfly flits from flower to flower? Weldy provides a surprising new perspective that reveals how people's lives are shaped by their art in unexpected ways, including studies confirming how black is the worst color to wear for health, success, and achievement. Discover which art forms to avoid, and which images can attract a positive future. Readers will find out how to use art to activate the Law of Attraction to magnetize the ideal love relationship, perfect job, brighter mood, and vibrant health. Weldy also shares the secrets of how cities like London were energetically designed using the revitalizing power of sacred geometry, turning England into the world's leading empire for centuries. Discover how to transform any tattoo, art piece, or room in the home using the secrets of Leonardo da Vinci, Plato, Vitruvius and the ancient Egyptians with balancing and harmonizing energy. Using the step-by-step tips outlined in this groundbreaking book, one can tap into the vast resources of the Universe to help achieve goals and manifest heartfelt dreams with greater ease.

For fifteen-year-old Mariana Ruiz, it's not so much an unexpected vacation as a literal "guilt trip"--her father's way of atoning for ignoring his Puerto Rican roots. But freedom from her parents is little compensation for being forced to spend two months with complete strangers rather than with her best friends in Philadelphia. Once on "vacation," her worst fears come true. The heat is merciless, the food is spicy, and her great aunt and uncle's mountain house teems with relatives, only one of whom--her distant cousin Lilly--speaks English. Bored, and hoping to make up for missing her best friend's star-studded Sweet 16, Mariana offers to help in the planning of Lilly's Quinceañera. Soon, despite herself, Mariana clicks with new friends who open doors to romance and long-hidden secrets. Suddenly the summer she dreaded is ending way too quickly. It might turn out that the last place she ever wanted to go is the one place she truly finds herself.
