Stieg Larsson & The Miscounted Manuscript

Bestselling author Stieg Larsson‘s younger brother has confirmed there is an unfinished manuscript by the late novelist.

Joakim Larsson told the Sunday Morning: “I got the email from Stieg 10 days before he died where he wrote, ‘Book No. 4 is nearly finished.’ To make it more complicated, this book No. 4, that’s book No. 5, because he thought that was more fun to write than book No. 4.” Later in the interview, Joakim stressed again that the so-called fourth book is actually the fifth book of the series.

At the moment, Larsson’s long-time partner Eva Gabrielsson has the manuscript. The Larsson family maintains they would not publish the manuscript. Gabrielsson and the Larsson family have been legally battling overthe novelist’s estate following Larsson’s  fatal heart attack. (Via CBC News)
