Quercus, the publisher of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, insisted it was no longer dependent on a single best-selling series – even though profits crashed more than 75 per cent to £1.4m last year.

Turnover fell by a fifth to £20.4m but the company said it wanted to avoid relying on one particular property for its revenue. It also has high hopes for That Close, the autobiography of Madness's singer Suggs, later this year.
