Publishers Weekly picks Tattoos Hornets Fire as one of the Top 10 Travel Books for 2012

TATTOOS HORNETS FIRE or the first time presents a pictorial dimension to the Sweden that has been introduced to so many readers of Stieg Larsson’s luminous novels, and one that they have longed to know better.  Stirring photography by internationally renowned photographers of the locations from these three books offer witness not only to locations that until this publication have rested in readers’ minds alone, but with additional photography, provide an ambience of the entirety of this beautiful, intriguing and widely unexplored country not recently documented in book format.

Here is a wonderful cultural excursion for the armchair traveler; a memento for the coffee table of the reader who has visited Sweden; and a first-time visual introduction for the soon-to-be traveler to Sweden to the places made so memorable and mesmerizing by Stieg Larsson.  Created with the important collaboration and support of VisitSweden, the Swedish tourist board, compelling images created exclusively for this book by two photographers widely acknowledged as the best in their field along with definitive explanations of the sites and their histories by one of Sweden’s foremost travel guides combine to create an important document in addition to a compelling read and visual tour de force.

This book is a special release in conjunction with VisitSweden.
