So it comes as a mild surprise, that a fourth book will be released some time in 2015. Â FromÂ GalleyCat:Â â€˜The Girl With the Dragon Tattooâ€™ Series to Get Fourth Book Next Year”:
“Swedish journalistÂ David LagercrantzÂ is writing the fourth book inÂ Stieg Larssonâ€˜sÂ Millennium trilogy and the follow up toÂ The Girl With the Dragon TattooÂ series will come out next year. The new book will start where Larssonâ€™s wildly successful series left off.
Radio SwedenÂ has the scoop: â€œThe new book will not be based on any notesÂ left behind by the late author, and instead will be a stand-alone sequel to the series. It will be released on the tenth anniversary of publication of the first book, â€œMen who hate women/The girl with the dragon tattooâ€, next year.â€”
The Telegraph has more details of note: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: new author signed up for fourth book“:
“The head of publishing at Norstedts, Eva Gedin, told AP the book will be an original work that includes nothing from the fourth book in the series that Larsson began writing but hadn’t finished when he died.
Â … Â According to his colleague Kurdo Baksi, Larsson had been working on a fourth Millennium book when he died. The manuscript, which was 75 per cent complete, was set in Ireland, Sweden and America and featured Salander’s twin Camilla.”
I don’t know. It could work out, but I’m a bit skeptical. Still, it’ll be an interesting story to follow.
