MacLehose Press today announced the title and cover for the much anticipated continuation to one of the best-loved crime series of the last decade.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web by the Swedish author David Lagercrantz will continue Stieg Larsson’s popular Millennium series. We are loving the dark cover design with the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander in the background.
Stieg Larsson's Millennium books have sold more than 80 million copies in 50 countries making it one of the most successful series in modern times.
The British publisher Christopher MacLehose said:
“David Lagercrantz is not only a distinguished novelist, he is an exceptional storyteller. His Millennium novel quite brilliantly prolongs the story of Lisbeth Salander and of Mikael Blomqvist."
Stieg Larsson’s family has been involved at every stage of the process. They wrote an agreement with David Lagercrantz for this novel giving him creative latitude while working on the project:
“By letting David Lagercrantz write his own Millennium novel we keep the characters and the universe Stieg Larsson created alive.” Joakim and Erland Larsson, the Stieg Larsson Estate.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web will be published worldwide on 27th August 2015, 10 years after Norstedts published The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Hachette will be publishing the title in Australia. Buy the book here.
