New "Dragon Tattoo" book to be published?

When I first read the news, I thought it was a joke or a bad rumor. However, it really seems to be the truth and I'm so excited for this to happen.

I am a huge fan of the books that began with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Stieg Larsson fast became a favorite author of mine with those three books and the characters he created. I could not read them fast enough and, when I finished, I read the first one again, just to make sure I had the full story.

Stieg Larsson had planned on writing more books with these characters. However, he passed away in 2004, and that, it seemed, was the end of that. Lisbeth would have to live on in the hearts and minds of those of us who came to love her.

But now, David Lagercrantz has written a new book that, I hear, is keeping true to the characters. He is not using any of the material written by Larsson for his 4th book, but he wrote his own, original piece. My understanding is that it will be released to the public the end of August. I, for one, cannot wait!

I did read the first book and really enjoyed it. It is a read that really makes one focus and figure things out. Thanks for this good news.
