A shocked late comer…

I had never heard of these books until about 2 weeks ago, when a friend recommended he had read them. I bought the trilogy off the net and after struggling initially to get into the first, i was hooked and couldnt put them down! Now i am almost at the end of the last book and am quite sad. I just found this site and had managed to miss the fact that Larsson had died. Knowing that 10 books were planned is frustrating! I hope that his partner does get the rights to release the 4th/5th. I have never read such an amazing trilogy in my life. Can anyone recommend another series to ideally follow this one? To make the transition easier?

  1. I have news for you Cara. In the swedish newspaper Aftonbladet today is an articel about the fourth book. Eva Gabrielsson says in an interwiew that she is ready to finish the fourth book. 320 pages are written allready. The title of the book is “Gods revenge”. In this book Lisbeth is finaly getting free from her demons and she removes her tattooes. Follow the link below and see the article that was published today. It is in Swedish i am afraid but maybe you cant translate in some way.

  2. Thnx Sven for Aftonbladet. Now I’ll give some work to my friend who lives in Sweden to translate it for me…Anyway, love the books, love the films!!! Fascinating! But it makes me sad that there are only three books and the fact that such a great author as Stieg is dead.

  5. Eva can’t publish the fourth book. She doesn’t own the rights to the characters, the plots, anything — that’s all part of the estate.

  6. Try Babelfish for a translation. Lisbeth Salander – a 21st centry Miss Marple?

  7. Bob, the way Mikael dealt with Dag’s death was premonitory. I doubt very much that the estate will see the eventual publication of the 4th as a problem.

    maybe it even has been solved by the time I write this…

  8. I just finished reading the third book in the series. I enjoyed all three books and never read so much in such a short time.
