Larsson was born on 20 July 1955, in Skellefteå, Västerbottens län. He grew up in Umeå and currently lives in Stockholm.

In the late 1970s, his namesake and friend, Stieg Larsson, ne Stig, the well-known author of the Millennium series, changed slightly the spelling of his first name to avoid confusion with Stig, by then a well-known writer.[1][2]

Larsson was member of the Kris editorial staff.[3]

His first success was in 1979 with Autisterna, since, Stig Larsson has established himself as one of Sweden's best-known and influential authors. "His instinct for psychological and emotional violence has been compared[by whom?] to that of August Strindberg and Ingmar Bergman."[4] He has published over 20 books including novels, short stories, and poetry collections. He has also written and directed internationally successful stage plays such as Vd and Systrar, bröder. In 1989, he wrote and directed his feature film debut Ängel, followed by The Rabbit Man in 1990. He has directed TV movies such as Under isen (1991) and Nigger (1991), and written screenplays for films such as Kristian Petris's acclaimed Sommaren (1995).[5]
