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.

The millennium trilogy is ,I’m my opinion, the best series of noveis written in the past half century. Lizabeth Salander is the epitomy of anti heroes, amoral but on the side of the Angeles. If pursued properly she could outdo Bond.

I am a picky reader, but found “the girl with the dragon tattoo” a wonderfully interwoven and uplifting read. It seems to me that it is rare that a man writes a novel featuring women who have been abused becoming strong and the “heroes”.

A clear line is drawn between positive male characters who respect women and destructive, dangerous ‘personality disordered’ predators – one I know to be valid. Even though most victims endure life long damage and receive no form of justice, I believe reading this author can be supportive of victims and women in general. Those that need no such validation or support will enjoy the skill and thrill of the ride !

Just finished the 3rd book of the Millennium trilogy. These were the 3 best detective novels I’ve ever read. Lisbeth Salander is a fascinating character. I learned of these novels from watching the movie version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Very good movie, but the book was better, in my opinion.

Darrell Davis, 28 June 2014

The books are always better,you get so much ore detail, I read the first two a few years ago, getting them from my local library. The 3 one hadn’t been published and I waited, in suspence until it came out. .Excellent, wish he was still alive to write more .
