What to Read When You Finish the Millennium Trilogy

Thanks to the ongoing legal wars between the people Stieg Larsson left behind, readers only have three books from his bestselling series. With no fourth (or is it actually fifth) book to be published, what’s a reader to do?

Publishers Weekly reports that Random House will release a special box set with the entire Millennium series in hardcover format. The set will include an 85-page book entitled On Stieg Larsson. Contributors include his colleague Jonas Sundberg, his original Swedish editor Eva Gedin, and his friend John Henri-Holmberg.

Kurdo Baksi wrote the memoir Stieg Larsson, My Friend, which is already out in Sweden. An English translation will be available by the end of the year. An interview with The Star revealed that Larsson made Baksi a character in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Baksi noted: “That is the best thing I have done in my life. I’m very proud of that.”

Stieg Larsson and the Mystery of His Fourth Novel

griltatoo23.jpgWith three books riding high on the bestseller list, the late Stieg Larsson left millions of fans hungry for more.

According to an AP report, a fourth, unfinished Larsson novel exists. The article quotes Larsson’s longtime friend John-Henri Holmberg, who revealed a few details about the book.

Here’s more from the article: “Holmberg said that Larsson was 320 pages into the fourth book and had planned to complete it by December. ‘The plot is set 120 kilometers north of Sachs Harbour, at Banks Island in the month of September,’ Larsson wrote in the e-mail, which Holmberg made available to The Associated Press. ‘According to the synopsis it should be 440 pages.’”
