Stieg Larsson’s fourth Millennium novel likely not happening


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When Stieg Larsson passed away in 2004, rumors started to swirl regarding an unfinished, fourth novel from his Millennium series that potentially was going to be published posthumously. Now, that plan is being scrapped.

“There’s the beginning of a fourth novel,” Eva Gabrielsson, Larsson’s longtime girlfriend, told BBC Radio 4 (via Digital Spy). “I would estimate it to be about 200 pages, given what I saw in late August during our last vacation, and given what I knew of Stieg’s workload in his last two months.”

But there apparently isn’t enough for the book to ever come together.

“Stieg was a spontaneous writer, he could write scenes and not knit them together until later on – he just liked the scene,” Gabrielsson elaborated. “You can’t call it a novel.”

And you couldn’t call it a screenplay, much to Hollywood’s dismay.

Even Paul Bogaards, Larsson’s publisher and senior VP of publicity at Alfred A. Knopf publishing house, admitted in January, “There is no fourth book from Stieg Larsson on the horizon.”

But there is a new movie directed by David Fincher due in theaters in December.
