Stieg Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series to be revived under new author
Tuesday 17 December 2013
The Swedish publisher of the late Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium trilogy has hired an author to write a fourth book in the series.
Larsson, who died in 2004, sold 75 million copies of his novels, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.
His publisher, Norstedts, has signed a contract with David Lagercrantz, author of I am Zlatan, for a new book about hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomqvist, set to be published in August 2015.
The head of publishing at Norstedts, Eva Gedin, said the book will be an original work that includes nothing from Larsson’s unfinished fourth book.
