I have been wanting to post about these books for a while now but kept on changing my mind every time!… the reason being that (a) Its already a big Hollywood hit so I assume everyone knows about them (b) `Everyone read them right?!!!….
Anyways I finally decided that I should post about them …. you know… just incase there are people out there who haven’t read the books yet!!!
I must say that I have only read the 1st book ( just in time to watch the movie) and am half way through the 2nd book…. I am hooked and I highly recommend reading them….
The family of the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson have confirmed that Larsson had written a further sequel before his sudden death!!!
According to the author’s brother, Larsson sent him an email 10 days before he died saying that another book was almost finished. The twist: Stieg Larrson had apparently decided to jump ahead in the series and write the fifth installment “because he thought that was more fun to write than book number four.” The New York Times’ Julie Bosman says: ”The disclosure — should it be true — adds another turn to an already twisty personal story that is nearly as complicated as the plots of the Swedish crime mysteries that Mr. Larsson wrote.”
However no further books will be published now due to a “bitter dispute” between the Larsson family and the author’s longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson. Although Gabrielsson lived with Larsson for more than 30 years, the two never married, and so, under Swedish law, his estate and the rights to his books reverted to his family. Gabrielsson is now fighting in court for her share of the profits…. Let’s hope that the disputes end quickly!!!
