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.

He started working at a post office, moving on to a graphic designer job at a news bureau, starting the Expo foundation and working as chief editor. And somewhere in the middle of all this, a great writer steps forward.

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.

After spending 3 days reading book one & two, waiting for the third to be translated was so difficult but well worth the wait, I probably loved it the best of the three.

I was devastated when it was finished.

Saw the film as soon it was released in Australia and really enjoyed the interpretation of all the actors.

I will probably reread the triology soon. Lisbeth is an unusual but fasinating heroine.

I’m right about to start reading the third book – read the previous ones and was hooked! Great storyline, extraordinarily well written characters…it’s all there!

Also already saw the first two movies and can’t await No.3 to come to the cinemas. Noomi Rapace rocks as Lisbeth. I’ll bet none of the now planned US remakes can get that good.

Fantastic books. Read “Tattoo” and “Fire”. I couldn’t put them down. I am anxiously awaiting book three. Completely devastated to have lost such a creative talent. He has made some intense contributions in the areas of anti-profiling and anti-racism. He will posthumorously be a driving force.

Bought the first book in the trilogy several months ago, but never read it. It wasn’t until after I found “The Girl Who Played with Fire” that I realized this wonderful author had penned more than one book! I bought that one, then started reading them in order. Finished the 2nd book last night, and am anxiously awaiting the last one. Stopped by Books A Million today to see if they could tell me when it would be released. All they could tell me is that it will be out sometime this month. I can hardly wait!!
