Sequel Author Discusses Salander

In two exclusive videos, David Lagercrantz, the Swedish author of “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” the fourth installment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series, dives into Lisbeth Salander’s psyche. “I’ve heard people call Lisbeth Salander a psychopath,” Lagercrantz says in the video above. “But that’s so terribly wrong.” Stieg Larsson’s estate, as fans of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and its sequels will note, specifically chose Lagercrantz to continue the internationally best-selling novels. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the books, Lagercrantz had to write “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” under Salander-esque levels of security. Lagercrantz wrote the work on a computer with no internet connection, and delivered the Swedish manuscript to his publishers by hand.
