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.

A unusual path

There are many ways to become writer, even so, Stieg's path is quite unusual.

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 cannot believe that Rooney Mara was nominated for an Oscar for her performance and Noomi Rapace was not. Her performance was ‘fine’ but it was nothing in comparison to Noomi’s. I cannot support the Academy Awards from here on out-seriously. Noomi Rapace is an absolute genius and her performance totally moved me. All I can say is that SHE is Lisbeth Salander and everyone else is just a zerox copy.

I totally agree with this evaluation. Totally., 3 July 2013

I also agree with that comment. To my point of view Noomi Rapace did an excellent work in convince me she was actually Lisbeth Salander. Also Steig Larsson is a genius. I admire him and I wish he had lived longer so we would had been enjoying his work. Pity he died too young.

Connie Saldivar, 5 July 2013

Noomi was much better in my opinion through out the series she epitomized what you felt she was like. I cannot believe she has been over looked and under appreciated. Noomi you are my lisbeth.

These books are amazing! I think the world is really missing out, because of Stiegs death. We only got to read the start. I guess we’ll always keep thinking about the rest that could have been.
