New writer hired to continue ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ book series
The Swedish publisher of the popular book trilogy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo has reportedly hired another author to write a sequel to the series penned by Stieg Larsson, who died in 2004. Norstedts announced it signed David Lagercrantz to write the new series which will feature the characters of journalist Mikael Blomqvist and hacker Lisbeth Salander. Lagercrantz was the ghostwriter of I am Zlatan Ibrahimović, the autobiography of the Swedish football player. Eva Gedin, head of publishing at Norstedts, told Variety that the new series would not take anything from the original other than the characters — the storyline will continue where the third book in the trilogy left off, but with a completely new plot.
