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.

Sad that this talent and crusader is gone to soon. Love the stories and also hope there is another to be published posthumously.

Have just finished the first 2 books and started on the third - heard about the books on ABS Radio and was intrigued enough to ask for them as Christmas presents! Am a great fan of various crime writers - Larsson is now on my list - hope the rest of the books can somehow be finished.

Me too, just about to get the third. Would you happen to have had a career in relation to crime?

Have read the first 2 and am now half way through the third one. I have absolutely loved these books and am reading the last one as slowly as possible to maximise the enjoyment. Let's hope that the family arrange to have the fourth one finished by a ghost writer...and then bring out the rest of the envisaged books. Fantastic reads.

Right wingers alive & well in USA ...we call them our government. Loved this book and will savor the next two......even while in federal prision. Long live the fight against racism & injustice .....everywhere!!

Just finished "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," and loved it, can't wait to read the next two! How sad he is gone, and monstrous that he was threatened by right wingers. The right-wing nuts in America seek to destroy anything in their path that doesn't agree with their psychotic philosophy. They are my country's own taliban. I will savor the next three books. Thank you Stieg Larsson if you can read this.
