Forty years after the disappearance of Harriet Vanger from the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family, her octogenarian uncle, convinced that she was murdered by someone from her own deeply dysfunctional clan, hires journalist Mikael Blomkvist, assisted by the unconventional young hacker Lisbeth Salander, to investigate. Published in 1968, The Laughing Policeman is the fourth in the Martin Beck detective series by Swedish husband-and-wife team Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo.
April 5, 2010 • The first two books in Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy are megahits, and the third, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, comes out in May. November 13, 2008 • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is an unlikely best-seller a€” it's the first book in a trilogy of thrillers written by Stieg Larsson, a previously unknown Swedish journalist who died of a heart attack in 2004. September 23, 2008 • An anti-social Goth gal-pal adds fun and a bracing feminist perspective to Stieg Larsson's witty, hard-boiled tale, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Note: Book excerpts are provided by the publisher and may contain language some find offensive. The Swedish publisher of the best-selling The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy said it has hired an author to write a sequel to the series by Stieg Larsson, who died in 2004.
Norstedts said it signed a contract with David Lagercrantz, the author of I Am Zlatan, a biography of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the captain of Sweden's soccer team, to write a new novel about journalist Mikael Blomqvist and hacker Lisbeth Salander that is scheduled to be published in August 2015.
Larsson's trilogy about a darker side of Sweden, including murder mysteries, sex trafficking scandals and a secret government unit, has been a huge international success, with more than 75 million books sold in 50 countries. Rooney Mara (left) and Noomi Rapace have both portrayed Lisbeth Salander in the film adaptions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The head of publishing at Norstedts, Eva Gedin, said the book will be an original work and includes nothing from the fourth book in the series, which Larsson began writing but hadn't finished when he died at age 50. Gedin said the decision to continue the series had been taken after careful considerations and long discussions with Larsson's father and brother, Erland and Joakim Larsson, who own the rights to his work. Larsson's longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson, who has been in a legal dispute with Erland and Joakim over the rights to the trilogy, told daily newspaper Aftonbladet she finds it "tasteless" to try to make more money out of something that is already so successful. Since Larsson's death the whereabouts of his unfinished fourth manuscript have been clouded in mystery.


But some American readers don't want to wait that long a€” they're importing the book from England, where it was released last year.
Larsson didn't leave a will, so only his brother and father inherited the rights to his works.
Gabrielsson first said she had a laptop containing the manuscript, but later said she does not have it and does not want to see any other book in the Millennium series published. Not since the arrival of Ikea on these shores has Sweden made such an inroad into the American home and imagination.
When, as usual, the flower was delivered, he took off the wrapping paper and then picked up the telephone to call Detective Superintendent Morell who, when he retired, had moved to Lake Siljan in Dalarna. But critic Maureen Corrigan says the impressive "Ice Age" of Nordic mystery writing is well under way. They were not only the same age, they had been born on the same day–which was something of an irony under the circumstances. It was a plant about ten centimetres high with small, heather-like foliage and a white flower with five petals about two centimetres across. It was difficult to grow in Sweden because it thrived in a dry climate and had to remain indoors half of the year. Anywhere from a handful to a few hundred enthusiasts could have had access to seeds or plants.
And those could have changed hands between friends or been bought by mail order from anywhere in Europe, anywhere in the Antipodes.
They were always beautiful and for the most part rare flowers, always pressed, mounted on watercolour paper in a simple frame measuring 15cm by 28cm.
He would never forget his first case, in which he had had to take into custody a violent and appallingly drunk worker at an electrical substation before he caused others harm. During his career he had brought in poachers, wife beaters, con men, car thieves, and drunk drivers.


In five of these the murderer had called the police himself and, full of remorse, confessed to having killed his wife or brother or some other relative. To the detective superintendent’s dismay, the statute of limitations eventually put an end to the matter. The situation was doubly absurd because after spending literally thousands of hours brooding, on duty and off, he could not say beyond doubt that a crime had indeed been committed. The written verdict was handed down at 10:00 on Friday morning, and all that remained was a summing up from the reporters waiting in the corridor outside the district court.
Once, when he was twenty-three and had just started his first summer job as a journalist, Blomkvist had chanced upon a gang which had pulled off five bank robberies over the past two years. They wore masks from Disney World, so inevitably police logic dubbed them the Donald Duck Gang. The newspapers renamed them the Bear Gang, which sounded more sinister, more appropriate to the fact that on two occasions they had recklessly fired warning shots and threatened curious passersby. As soon as the robbers were gone he went to a public telephone and dictated his story for live broadcast. Exactly why he made the connection he could not explain, even to the police, but as he was listening to the news report he remembered a group of four men in a summer cabin a few hundred feet down the road.
He had seen them playing badminton out in the yard: four blond, athletic types in shorts with their shirts off.
