According to an AP report, a fourth, unfinished Larsson novel exists. The article quotes Larsson’s longtime friend John-Henri Holmberg, who revealed a few details about the book.

Here’s more from the article: “Holmberg said that Larsson was 320 pages into the fourth book and had planned to complete it by December. ‘The plot is set 120 kilometers north of Sachs Harbour, at Banks Island in the month of September,’ Larsson wrote in the e-mail, which Holmberg made available to The Associated Press. ‘According to the synopsis it should be 440 pages.'”

If you can’t wait for more books from the dark Swedish novelist, visit the Stieg Larsson Classics thread on Twitter where writers come up with imaginary titles of classic lit like this tweet: “Nabokov’s THE GIRL WHO WASN’T OLD ENOUGH FOR A DRAGON TATTOO.” (Via Publishers Lunch)
