Stieg Larsson inconveniently died before his three Lisbeth Salander Scandinavian nerdo-journodetective-hacker-slasher-porn books became the hottest thing in publishing since Harry Potter. Now, Larsson's brother has confirmed the existence of a fourth manuscript. Or...a fifth manuscript?
Larsson's brother told CBS yesterday:
"I got the e-mail from Stieg ten days before he died where he wrote 'Book number four is nearly finished.'" ..
"To make it more complicated, this book number four, that's book number five, because he thought that was more fun to write than book number four."
Of course there's a big family feud over his estate and his family says they "won't publish the book even if it surfaces." Just pretend you never knew about it.
