What a bummer for Stieg Larsson fans.
It has been confirmed by the deceased author's girlfriend Eva Gabrielsson that there will not be a fourth Girl With The Dragon Tattoo book.
"There's the beginning of a fourth novel. I would estimate it to be about 200 pages, given what I saw in late August during our last vacation, and given what I knew of Stieg's workload in his last two months."
It probably doesn't hang together. Stieg was a spontaneous writer, he could write scenes and not knit them together until later on - he just liked the scene. You can't call it a novel."
Rumors swirled that a fourth book was a possibility if only Larsson's estate would have agreed to publish it. But, looks like it will definitely remain a trilogy.
At least we still have the movie (American version) coming out later this year, though, right??
