Stieg Larson's 4th book to be printed?

A close friend of the Swedish crime writer has revealed the plot for what he says is the fourth book in the Millennium Series - and it'll have protagonist Lisbeth Salander's estranged sister Camilla in a key role.

Larsson, 50, died suddenly in 2004 before his books The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest were published.

The crime trilogy - about anti-heroine, punk computer hacker Salander - has sold more than 45 million copies worldwide and were made into films.

But Larsson's friend Kurdo Baksi, who wrote My friend Stieg Larsson last year, said the author had more books in the pipeline, the Swedish newspaper Expressen reported.

Baksi told the Expressen the fourth book in the series was set on Banks Island, a remote island off the west coast of Canada, and features Camilla, who was last seen briefly in the second novel The Girl Who Played With Fire . The deepening relationship between Salander and investigative journalist Mikael Blomqvist would also be explored.

Baksi said Larsson had completed the introduction and finale to the fourth, untitled, book - rumoured to be part of a planned six-book series.
