New Author to Write Fourth <em>Dragon Tattoo</em> Book

Swedish publishing firm Norstedts announced today that it has hired author David Lagercrantz to write a sequel to the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy penned by the late Stieg Larsson. Lagercrantz previously wrote I Am Zlatan, a biography of soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Larsson, who died in 2004, was working on another book when he passed, but Norstedts said that Lagercrantz will pen an original work that borrows nothing but the main characters—journalist Mikael Blomqvist and computer hacker Lisbeth Salander—from Larsson’s unfinished manuscript.

Larsson’s trilogy has sold over 75 million copies worldwide. The new Dragon Tattoo book is scheduled to come out in August 2015.
