New Stieg Larsson Stories Discovered
The Swedish National Library has discovered two short stories by crime novelist Stieg Larsson whose popular Millenium Series has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, the Associated Press reports.
Larsson sent the stories to a Swedish science fiction magazine when he was 17, but the stories were rejected. The Swedish National Library received the stories in 2007 as part of a donation.
In a letter to the science fiction magazine, Larsson said the stories were his first try at writing. He also said that he aspired to be an author and journalist.
Larsson died of a sudden heart attack in 2004 at the age of 50. The novelist died before he got to see his three crime novels, which feature a prickly, pierced, computer hacker heroine, become successful. The author had originally planned to write 10 books for the series. The novels were made into successful Swedish films and are currently being made into Hollywood films.
