The next installment in the Millenium series will be a trilogy written by bestselling Swedish author Karin Smirnoff! This is the first time this series will be written and translated by a woman, and Karin (from a small town in northern Sweden, just like Stieg Larsson himself) could not be a more perfect choice. The as-yet-untitled seventh Millenium novel will be published in the UK on August 31, 2023 and in the U.S. and Canada on September 5, 2023.
Karin's own books have sold over 700,000 copies, and she says, “I said yes to the project without hesitation, even though it postpones my own ideas for new novels. It’s an exciting opportunity to independently create and make something new based on a unique fictional universe that is known worldwide. The Millennium books are classics in their genre, where the combination of unforgettable characters and the strong political and societal engagement still fascinates readers. I will continue to build on Stieg Larsson's core themes, such as violence, abuse of power, and contemporary political currents.”
