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.

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.

Living in Stockholm for almost 2 years now, I didn’t want to read Larsson’s trilogy… I thought: “Too much talking around these books, they’re just crap”… But working within the tourism industry, more and more clients from all over the world started asking me more and more questions about the Millenium books… “Have you read the books? Is Sweden really the way Larsson describes it? Do you know things about the village of Hedestad?”… So I decided to buy the 1st book to be able to answer my clients and sound clever!… And I do not regret it at all!… I bought the book last week and I haven’t finished it yet but I can’t stop reading it. On the bus, during lunch breaks, in my bed… I even dream about it!… And living in Stockholm makes the story even more alive… I’ve already been to Södermal to see where the Millenium offices were…

Just one thing to add: don’t be stupid and react like I did. If people tell you that something’s good, you should then give it a try before thinking they’re wrong!

I read already read the 3 books last year (in French) and the titles of the 3 books in english are really silly and far from the original titles. That’s too bad.

The books are amazing and it has been a long time that I did not read that much in such a short period !

Only since one year I have a real hunger to read books. I’m 40 years old now, but you are never too old to start reading! “The Millennium Series” in Dutch: ?Mannen die vrouwen haten?, ?De vrouw die met vuur speelde? en ?Gerechtigheid?. The best books yet in my short reading-history. It?s such a shame that Stieg Larsson can?t write more great books! Bedankt en rust zacht!

Just bought “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and decided to re-read “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” because I wanted it fresh in my mind before I started the sequel. (I read the first book maybe a year ago). Even reading it for the second time, I found it hard to put down. Can’t wait to start the sequel and am very impatient for the third book to arrive in Australia! Stieg Larsson is a genius!!!

I read the tree books in Danish last year – and MAN they rock!

They’re some of my favorite books of all time, Stieg Larsson was no less than brilliant at creating this amazing world. Lisbeth Salander is awesome! 😀 Once you begin reading, there’s no going back – you get sucked in and I can only advice to fasten your seat-belt tightly 😉

Can’t wait to watch the movie based on book 1 soon!
