The man who left too soon: The Biography of Stieg Larrson by Barry Forshaw’Good news for Stieg Larsson fans. According to Sweden’s National Library several unpublished science fiction stories have been found, written by the bestselling author who died too soon.

The manuscripts were found in Stockholm and were written by Stieg Larsson in the 70′s when he was just 17 years old. It’s now up to his father and brother, who are responsible for the Stieg Larsson estate, to decide whether they will finally be published or not.

Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, is a global hit, selling more than 25 million copies.

His first book, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, has been adapted for film in Sweden and a Hollywood remake is currently being made.

Unfortunately Larsson died in 2004 at age 50 of a heart attack and never had the chance to enjoy his literary success. He worked as a journalist during his life and the manuscripts of the three novels were only published after his death.

For the fans who already read the Milennium Trilogy and can’t wait to find out whether the unpublished stories will be made available, why not check out Barry Forshaw’s new biography of Stieg Larsson himself: The Man Who Left Too Soon: The Biography of Stieg Larsson? It definitely provides a fascinating background and insight into the man who gave us Lisbeth Salander and then did indeed leave too soon.
