Stieg Larsson, the British crime writer?

The Rap Sheet posted the finalists for the Barry crime fiction award some days back. Great list, and congrats to Duane Swierczynski and Christa Faust (whose Money Shot, her novel on the paperback list, we are publishing next Spring with Arktinen Banaani). But what's Stieg Larsson doing in a list for British writers? Does Britain = the whole Europe, containing Sweden?

And what's with Åsa Larsson, in a list for best paperback originals? It's not an original novel in any sense, since it's a translation.
