Editor’s Note: These are being posted by me today because Joanna’s been hit by a nasty ice storm and is without power. Send warm thoughts her way!


  1. I have to agree that it’s sad that a new writer has been hired to continue Larssons characters. It’s like there is some cultural sickness that will not allow a story that could be a franchise to end. I liked the original books but I’ll pass when this one comes out. Even if Larsson had lived I felt as if I had enough of the characters after three books.

  2. What is your problem with the fourth book of Millennium trilogy? It is not like somebody is going to force you to read it. Just ignore it and let people that want to read about Lisbeth read that thing.
    You have just provided them with another free advertising.
    Obviously Larson’s estate has no problem with somebody else using the characters and the brand.

  3. @Name Required, actually I don’t have a problem with it and I’m curious to see what it’s like. However, I recognize that not everyone will feel the same way, and I thought Mike Cane had some good points in his article, which made it worthy of including in the links post.
