I’m currently reading David Lagercrantz‘ highly anticipated and heavily debated book. So far, I’m really enjoying it, as the suspense is just beginning to build, and he’s done a very good job of emulating Stieg‘s writing (which, in any other case would have been a bad thing – Stieg was not a literary writer, so much as a journalist telling gripping stories with amazing characters.)
As an author and fan of Stieg, I’m against this book. But as a fan of his amazing characters, I’m thrilled. As such, I’m reading with anticipation and mixed feelings. Unfortunately, I fear that Stieg’s father and brother ended up pressuring Eva into never wanting to release and/or find someone to finish Stieg’s unfinished manuscript, when they threatened to kick her from her apartment unless she handed over Stieg’s laptop.
For those not in the know, there was a fourth manuscript, it was unfinished, and I think Stieg would have wanted Eva (or someone of her choosing) to finish it.
My latest book is inspired by Stieg’s books, and I hope that people who liked them will also like my book. I wish that Stieg could still be alive to witness how beloved his characters and stories have become.
