The NYT reports that a short story by the 17-year-old Stieg Larsson will be published in
English for the first time next year, possibly enticing fans of the
best-selling Millennium trilogy that was released after Mr. Larsson’s
death in 2004.
The unpublished story is part of a new anthology of crime fiction, A
Darker Shade of Sweden, scheduled for release in February. Mysterious
Press, an imprint of Grove Atlantic, announced on Tuesday that it had
acquired the collection.
The anthology collects stories from 20 Swedish writers, including
Henning Mankell, Asa Larsson, Maj Sjowall, Per Wahloo and Sara
Stridsberg. Eva Gabrielsson, Mr. Larson’s companion, has also written a
story that will be published in the collection.
