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.

I’m very proud of that.”
