After the death of  Stieg Larsson in 2004 most people – rightly – assumed we wouldn’t have anymore installments in his magnum opus, the Millenium trilogy. However, we were all wrong…

This August 27th That Which Does Not Kill will be released in 35 countries; it will be completed by David Lagercrantz, co-author of  Swedish football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s autobiography.

The book will focus once more on Lisbeth Salander, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Details on the 500 page book are being kept secret at the minute. The book will be in Swedish like the others originally.

Lagercrantz told the Dagens Nyheter newspaper: “What I wanted to make use of in the book was the vast mythology that Stieg Larsson left behind, the world he created.

“Lisbeth Salander’s not just any superhero. She’s not only great because of her talents but also because of her context and background.”

The late Larsson had reportedly another seven book s planned. It is not known if they will be the basis for That Which Does Not Kill or if the stories will all eventually be released in a similar form at this point.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
