There will be no fourth Millennium book… at the moment

21st January 2011

The publisher of the late Stieg Larsson has put the brakes on speculation that the crime writer's partner will finish the fourth book of the Millennium series.

In her memoir Millennium, Stieg and Me, which was published in Scandinavia and France this week, Eva Gabrielsson said she has suggested to Larsson's family that she could complete the draft of an unfinished fourth novel.

However, Paul Bogaards, senior vice-president of publicity, promotion and media relations at publishing house Alfred A. Knopf, told wordandfilm.com that plans to release another instalment of the Millennium series are not 'on the horizon'.

'Only the estate, controlled by his family [Joakim and Erland Larsson], can authorise publication of a fourth book and they have no intention of doing so at the moment,' he commented.

However, the website pointed out that the manuscript, which Gabrielsson claims is stored on a laptop in her possession, may still be published in the distant future, noting the use of ambiguous language such as 'at the moment' in Mr Bogaards' statement.

Earlier this month, Nielsen BookScan figures published by the Guardian showed that Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the top-selling title of 2010.
