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.

Am nearly finished the second book – The girl who played with Fire. I am listening to them as audio books. They are magnificant and really keep my mind on the plot and the characters. Please let us have the fourth book.

Has anyone assembled a cast of characters for the series? I’m in Hornet’s Nest and desperately trying to sort out the police and others, without having to . I’d also like to find maps for the second and third books. Thanks.

Katherine McGinnis, 4 August 2010

I did.

KGO, 9 August 2010

Is the list of Characters posted some where? I am have trouble remebering who belongs to what sector. Nystrom and Faste are the two I am looking at right now. I can’t remember why Faste has it out for Slander?

Lesly H, 12 August 2010

Faste seems to be just a chauvinistic pig who doesnt think women should be in any authorotative role of power, almost like they are subservient. I dont think there was an acutal personal vendetta explained ..just seemed like a jackass in general

I am half way through the second book and enjoying it immensely even though this is not the type of fiction I usually read. However, I have one criticism: there is absolutely NO WAY you would find any significant number of sheep anywhere north of Alice Springs or anywhere in Central Australia for that matter. This country is exclusively cattle country and sheep would find it very difficult to survive there at all. The idea of Harriet Vagner having a ‘sheep, cattle, pig and chicken eterprise’ anywhere in the Northern Territory of Australia is absurd! It made me laugh and wonder about the way the rest of the world perceives Australia. I trust Blomkvist and Salander are better researchers than Larsson.

Trust an Australian to be so self absorbed!

The closest I’ve come to Stockholm is Gotland.

Probably not enough to prompt a blurb. But, you know, don’t ask, don’t get.

Love the books. And NO WAY would Lisbeth be listening to Lady GaGa… My bet is she’d have a pirate copy of the “Fat Wrecktrospective” cranked to 11…

Tony, 29 July 2010

I think she listens to Bjork or KT Tunstall when she’s in a good contemplative mood, and Alanis Morissette or Liz Phair when she’s pissed. Probably just means I’m too old.
