But that's not all....

I have yet to tackle Larsson's popular trilogy, but according to a recent article, the trilogy was supposed to be a series of four novels. The fourth of Larsson's Millennium series was left unfinished on his computer when he died unexpectedly at age 50. Larsson's family and his longtime partner are in dispute over who has the rights to his final novel. At this juncture, though, it appears that this unfinished book may go the way of The Mystery of Edwin Drood if the two sides can't come to an agreement.

In other news, lawyers recently opened four bank deposit boxes full of work by Franz Kafka. The Czech writer requested that all of his writings be burned after his death, but a close friend (thankfully) refused to comply. The cache contains a number of unpublished works, items that could provide unique insight into the life of one of the world's foremost writers.
