So … a new “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” Book?

So it comes as a mild surprise, that a fourth book will be released some time in 2015.  From GalleyCat: ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Series to Get Fourth Book Next Year”:

“Swedish journalist David Lagercrantz is writing the fourth book in Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium trilogy and the follow up to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series will come out next year. The new book will start where Larsson’s wildly successful series left off.

Radio Sweden has the scoop: “The new book will not be based on any notes 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, “Men who hate women/The girl with the dragon tattoo”, next year.””

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.

 …  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.
