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.

I just recently discovered Stieg Larsson. I have 50 pages left in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" (I know, I know. How could I stop? Work called! And I want to savor.)

It is possibly the best novel I've ever read. The story is amazingly tight and of course, Lizbeth, how wonderful to meet her.

I don't want his stories to end. Can more be said to emphasize how much I love his writing?

DONT SEE THE MOVIE the movie will totally ruin your opinion of the book. the movie doesent show taht erika and blomkvist are lovers and it is very desipponting when they come to martin the killers room, the movie just doesent bring the point of the book and remember the book is only based on the book so its not completly the same that the book says.

After the first two, I decided not to wait for the third to be published in English and had my local library track down a copy of "Luftslottet Som Spraengdes" in Swedish, which, as a Norwegian speaker, I can read fairly well. It's very good, very complicated and more dense and political than the first two. It's quite a tome and I've put all of my other reading on hold to finish it. A lot of the Swedish politics goes by me but it's a great read.

The first movie of the trilogy was a horrific disappointment. This was even a thousand times worse and more boring than the movie of the Da Vinci Code. And all the books were so exiting.

To bad!

- Sander, 18 September 2009

The Da Vinci Code movie was boring? Really, boring? Must explain why everyone left the theaters mid-film. C'mon. You can't expect a movie to do what a book does. It's impossible -- it's like asking a painting to sound like a symphony.
