The much anticipated continuation to one of the best-loved crime series of the last decade will be published in Sweden as Det som inte dödar oss (What Doesn’t Kill You). The English-language title is yet to be confirmed. It continues the successful Stieg Larson Millenium series that began with The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo.
Stieg Larsson's Millennium books have sold more than 80 million copies in 50 countries making it one of the most successful series of novels in modern times.
Publisher Christopher MacLehose said: “In one sense the chance to publish a new novel in the Millennium series merely underlines the sorrow of every one of his readers that Stieg Larsson could not have gone on to complete his planned ten-book oeuvre. But – and it is now almost a new and certainly fabled genre – the continuation by another hand has been long anticipated and David Lagercrantz will keep a very great storyteller’s flame alive. “
Stieg Larsson’s family has been involved at every stage of the process. They wrote an agreement with David Lagercrantz for this novel giving him creative latitude while working on the project:
“By letting David Lagercrantz write his own Millennium novel we keep the characters and the universe Stieg Larsson created alive.” Joakim and Erland Larsson, the Stieg Larsson Estate.
Publication worldwide will be on 27th August 2015, 10 years since Norstedts published Män som hatar kvinnor which in English was called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Hachette will be publishing the title in Australia.
