Well, well, well, isn’t that amazing: there will be a “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” book. You’re thinking: isn’t the author dead? Never stopped V. C. Andrews. Hollywood Reporter says:

A close friend of deceased crime writer Stieg Larsson has revealed details of the unpublished manuscript thought to be the fourth book in the global best-selling Millennium series.

 

Larsson confidant Kurdo Baksi told Swedish daily paper the Expressen that Camilla, the estranged twin sister of Millennium’s goth hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander, plays a major role in the fourth book.

 

Baksi is quoted in Expressen as saying the fourth novel is set on the remote Banks Island in Canada and the further deepens the relationship between Salander and investigative journalist Mikael Blomqvist. Baksi, whose book My friend Stieg Larsson was a best-seller last year, added that before he died Larsson completed a detailed introduction and a finale to the fourth book.

They have an opening scene and the last chapter? Filling it in should be easy. Lots of hacking and a few scenes of Lisbeth Sanders (weight: 93 lbs) beating up beefy thugs, a nasty crime that turns into a conspiracy that goes right to the top of some key Swedish industry, and you're set.
