David Lagercrantz to write sequel for Stieg Larsson’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series

Looks like the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is coming back!

Norstedts, the Swedish publisher of the best-selling trilogy, has signed a contract with Swedish writer David Lagercrantz to write a new novel about journalist Mikael Blomqvist and hacker Lisbeth Salander that is scheduled to be published in August 2015.

Larsson’s trilogy sold an astonishing 75 million books in 50 countries.

The book will be an original work said Eva Gedin, head of publishing. “Obviously it will build on the previous books,” she said. “Blomqvist and Salander will be included and many of the other characters.”

Gedin said the decision to continue the series had been taken after careful considerations and long discussions with Larsson’s father and brother, Erland and Joakim Larsson, who own the rights to his work.

Since Larsson’s death the whereabouts of his unfinished fourth manuscript have been clouded in mystery. Eva Gabrielsson, Larsson’s longtime partner, first said she had a laptop containing the manuscript, but later said she does not have it and does not want to see any other book in the Millennium series published.
