The 4th book

The status of the 4th book

When Stieg started writing the Millennium series, he laid an outline of a total of ten books. Before his death in November 2004, he had finished the first three books and was well underway with the fourth. In an email written to a friend a month before his death, Stieg says that he has finished about half of the fourth book. Stieg says that he has written the beginning and the end, but that the middle part is not finished yet.

Many readers have asked if Eva Gabrielsson, Stieg's life companion, could finish the fourth book, as she was deeply involved in the writing while Stieg was still alive. Eva herself is very positive, however, Swedish jurisdiction obstructs such a solution.

Stieg & Moi

The book “Stieg & Moi”, written by Eva Gabrielsson and Marie Francois Colombani comes out the 19 Jan 2011. The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has read a rawcopy of the book and can reveal several interesting scoops.

Eva says in the book that she could finish the fourth manuscript but is, as of this moment unable to due to the legal dispute between her and Stieg Larsson's father and brother. The Swedish title of the fourh book is also told, and is said to be “Guds hämd” (english translation: God's revenge).

Aftonbladet has earlier published the news that the fourth book would take place in Canada, about 75 miles (120km) north of Sauchs Harbour on Banks Island. It is also told that the fourth script would mainly focus on Lisbet Salander, and how her personality changes when she starts to deal with her conflicts from the past. Her tattoos are explained and you are told that each and everyone represent a person who has hurt her throughout her life, both mentally and physically.

Please, please, please give me more of Lisbet Salander…I loved the first three books. I want to know more about her. I wanted to cry when I found out Stieg had died. I’m so sorry.

God, life’s so unfair. I’ve fell in love with Lisbeth’s character and now I can’t see how her life goes on. Do what you can to publish all the stuff Stieg Larsson wrote.

Telegraph UK at 23 Aug 2011 said the “fourth” is actually the 5th book, following Lisbeth twin sister in Ireland. And why Lisbeth has dragon tattoo not explained yet. Still waiting the new book, if any.

I just finished the third book today and feel a great sense of loss, like its incomplete somehow. Then i stumbled upon this site! A fourth book would mean the world to me. I don’t feel like Lisbet’s story is finished just yet.

I feel so cheated because I care about “the characters” and want to see them move forward…with peace and healing
