Bestsellers Postmortum

Tired of working?  Write a book, make a million or two, and retire.    Just be sure you don’t die first, but for heaven’s sake, have a will.

And, oh yes, write in an obscure language and get a talented writer/translator.

In Charles McGrath’s New York Times piece, “The Afterlife of Stieg Larsson,” Larsson’s messy legacy could be the makings of yet another novel.

I haven’t read any of Stieg Larsson’s popular crime books – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or The Girl Who Played with Fire. The last in the series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,  has been as anticipated as a Harry Potter book.

Any recommendations – to read or not to read?

  1. Loved the first two! I listened to them on my iPod so I feel like I know the characters personally. I have already preordered the Hornet’s Nest!

  2. I’ve heard some people suggesting the third part of the Larsson trilogy is not as good as the earlier ones. There are doubts, but which book can give me insurance it won’t disappoint me. The reputation of the author (his death has increased my curiosity) is huge, so may be the book would be worth the money.

  3. Enjoyed both novel one and two. Find the difference in culture and lifestyles intriguing.
