The original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy was written by Stieg Larsson who died at the age of 50 in 2004, selling more than 75million copies worldwide and has been turned into both Swedish and Hollywood movies. Now, it has been confirmed by the trilogy’s Swedish publishers that the fourth instalment will be written by a new writer they’ve hired.
Eva Gedin from publishing house Norstedts said: "We have now decided to let somebody take over and tell what happened next."
The chosen writer, David Lagercrantz, will write a new story about the characters of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomqvist.
The fourth installment, which is expected to be published in August 2015, will follow on from the tale of murder, corruption, and family secrets told in the original trilogy and feature its central players.
Although Lagercrantz is expected to add his own touches to the book, readers can expect that some familiar plot lines will be picked up.
