Fifty years have passed since Sweden’s most famous peacemaker, Dag Hammarskjöld, was killed in a plane crash in Africa – but his legacy lives on. The publications listed in this bibliography not only consist of biographies or books on UN, but also dag hammarskjöld fiction, novels, crime and poetry books inspired by Hammarskjöld, as well as drama and music that either address literature Hammarskjöld´s life or illustrates his poems. He seems to inspire our imagination. Dag Hammarskjöld´s life and legacy is alive. Hammarskjöld still affects UN as an organization; how the profession of an international civil servant is perceived and acted; but maybe most importantly, he still influences many individuals around the world. Dag Hammarskjöld exercises a strong symbolic leadership. In many ways, maybe as strongly as when he was alive.

The first by John F Kennedy (1961), the second by Swedish politician Mats Svegfors (2005), and the third by the Financial Times (2011). It is striking that Hammarskjöld continues to be relevant today. Around the world there are streets, squares, medals, prizes and schools that carry on the name of Hammarskjöld. Among the UN Secretaries-General, Hammarskjöld seems to be the most visible. He is the only one that has a building named after him in the Headquarters on Manhattan: the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. In the UN lobby there is always a floral wreath in the honor of Hammarskjöld and others who have died in the service of the UN. It is also said that many UN staff members keep photos in their rooms of Hammarskjöld as an important role model. Kofi Annan has declared that in difficult situations he asked himself “What would Dag do?” In a bibliography from 1999 of the first seven Secretaries-General, the list of Hammarskjöld´s entries exceeds the other ones (Peter J Kelly, 1999). The national library system Libris, registered more publications about Hammarskjöld in 2005, when Hammarskjöld would have turned 100, than in 1961 or 1962, when he passed away. The later publications not only consist of biographies or books on UN, but also fiction, novels, crime and poetry books inspired by Hammarskjöld, as well as drama
