Stieg Larsson

Lisbeth Salander Returns

Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return in a continuation of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series

This much anticipated continuation to one of the best-loved crime series of the last decade will be written by David Lagercrantz and published in Sweden as Det som inte dödar oss (“What Doesn’t Kill You”). The English-language title will differ, and is yet to be confirmed.

David Lagercrantz, the author of “What Doesn’t Kill You”, will be visiting the UK in the Spring as part of a seven-month build up to publication which MacLehose Press are aiming to make the event of the publishing year.

Publication worldwide will be on 27th August 2015, 10 years since Norstedts published Män som hatar kvinnor which in English was called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

STIEG LARSSON, 1954-2004

Before his career as a writer, Stieg Larsson was mostly known for his struggle against racism and right-wing extremism. Starting in the late 1970's, he combined his work as a graphic designer with holding lectures on right-wing extremism for Scotland Yard. During the following years he became an expert on the subject and held many lectures as well as writing many novels on the subject. In 1995, when 8 people were killed by neo-Nazis in Sweden, he was the main force behind the founding of the Expo-foundation, a group intended on exposing neo-Nazi activity in Sweden. From 1999 onwards he was appointed chief editor of the magazine Expo.

During the last 15 years of his life, he and his life companion Eva Gabrielsson lived under constant threat from right-wing violence.

Nice books... a bit like Henry Potter saga, where Lisbeth plays the role of the little wizard.

Also this extraordinary success is quite a mistery in my opinion!

I don`t know what to say... details, action... and Sally. All about Stieg. You read and you cannot do anything. If you have something to do don`t take the Larsson`s books... if you take you will forget about other things.

I couldn't leave the first two books. I wish I knew Swedish or German to be able to read the third one now. The movie and 4th book would be ....extremely amazing, can?t wait. It is such a loss that Stieg is not among us all, to continue the saga of Lisbeth! I will miss her character.

I really regret Stieg Larson's death because he is a very good writer and and his style, in my opinion, cannot be compared to anybody: I read many thriller books (by DanBrown, John Grishman, Ken Follet..) but I have mostly admired his writing. He was really great!! I hope all his books will become movies and I am eager to see the first one..waiting for the next ones...His political and social engagement is evident and deserves really my deep esteem and admiration!! And his favour to female characters!! In one word: his writing is wonderful!! Hello and my compliments to his present family and relatives!Hope to have some news about his fourth book and that any dispute regarding his heredity will be solved because he would have been certainly more happy in this case!!
