About the Author
The apartheid regime in South Africa twice sent assassins after Andrew McCoy, claiming his novel The Insurrectionist was a ‘blueprint for black revolution’ and a ‘handbook for the ANC’. Like Larsson, André Jute has been a journalist and graphic designer. His novel Reverse Negative led to the exposure of the spy in the Queen’s household, Anthony Blunt. He is an acclaimed expert on the thriller, his Writing a Thriller going into four ever-expanding editions over 25 years.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The review however does give a good insight into the editing process and how book publishing works that I found very interesting.
The book does require detailed attention and is not an easy read itself.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Trilogy. It gives one a better appreciation of the books.
Andre Jute has an entertainingly wry style which turns to outrage at just the moments it is most pleasing. I certainly recommend this book both if you like Stieg Larsson and if you don't and are trying to figure out why.
Then after couple of the years, I recently found this book and found out why. It is by any standart best literary critics I have read, and maybe I ever will.
If you loved Millenium, bevare nothing seems as is written! Really great work on authors part of this book.
