The unfinished manuscript

The status of the unfinished books

When Stieg started writing the Millennium series, he laid an outline of a total of ten books. Before his death in November 2004, he had finished the first three books and was well underway with the fourth. In an email written to a friend a month before his death, Stieg says that he has finished about half of the fourth book. Stieg says that he has written the beginning and the end, but that the middle part is not finished yet.

Many readers have asked if Eva Gabrielsson, Stieg's life companion, could finish the fourth book, as she was deeply involved in the writing while Stieg was still alive. Eva herself is very positive, however, Swedish jurisdiction obstructs such a solution.

Stieg & Moi

The book "Stieg & Moi", written by Eva Gabrielsson and Marie Francois Colombani comes out the 19 Jan 2011. The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has read a rawcopy of the book and can reveal several interesting scoops.

Eva says in the book that she could finish the fourth manuscript but is, as of this moment unable to due to the legal dispute between her and Stieg Larsson's father and brother. The Swedish title of the fourh book is also told, and is said to be "Guds hämd" (english translation: God's revenge).

Aftonbladet has earlier published the news that the fourth book would take place in Canada, about 75 miles (120km) north of Sauchs Harbour on Banks Island. It is also told that the fourth script would mainly focus on Lisbet Salander, and how her personality changes when she starts to deal with her conflicts from the past. Her tattoos are explained and you are told that each and everyone represent a person who has hurt her throughout her life, both mentally and physically.

It would be amazing if the rest of the books could be published. Hard to say if they would have the same style even if Eva Gabrielsson; was deeply involved in the writing of the first 3 books. I know as a fan I would love for e more to come of Lisbeth and the Millennium series.

I loved to read the trilogy. I have read all 3 books in ONE WEEK.

It's sad that Larsson died so early. When I founf out about this fourth book I went crazy and I don't know if it should be released or not. But deep in my heart I wish it could be released. (i wished he could be alive so I could read all os his 10 planed books of the series)

When does the twin sister come into the story

- , 5 February 2012

I have been led to believe that we learn a lot more about her twin sister Camilla in the fourth book. In fact I believe that Lisbeth and Camilla come face to face in book four.

i have already devoured books 1+2 in a 144hours can not wait to finish the third of this magnificent trilogy! This series will be display-ed prominently on my shelf along side my other treasures. My belated condolences to Ms. Gabrielsson, on the lost of this man and great talent. Our world is worst off for his lost. May the Good Lord Bless and keep you!!!!!!

I had no idea that there could have been a fourth book, I really hope that Eva is able to finish it and publish it. I am nearly finished the third and just havent been able to put any of them down. They are the best books I have ever read and I could literally cry that there could have been 10 of them altogether and that Eva is unable to complete the 4th :(:( devastated.
