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.”
Larsson, the author of the dark series about hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist, died of a heart attack in 2004. His common-law widow Eva Gabrielsson disapproves of the new book, and told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that she thinks it is “tasteless.”
