Girl With Dragon Tattoo Is Back!

Last seen variously nailing (criminal) feet to the floor and tentatively allowing journalist Mikael Blomkvist back into her life, Stieg Larsson’s superhacker Lisbeth Salander is preparing to make her fourth entrance into the literary arena – and this time, she’s trying to hack into the American National Security Agency. The British publisher of David Lagercrantz’s heavily embargoed follow-up to the late Larsson’s three Millennium novels revealed the first details about the plot of “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” today. The story of a book which has been authorised by Larsson’s estate but heavily criticised by his partner Eva Gabrielsson has been a closely guarded secret until now. Swedish writer Lagercrantz wrote the novel on a computer without an internet connection and delivered his manuscript by hand, with a single copy then couriered by its Swedish publisher Norstedts to the dozens of international houses which will release it on August 27th.
