Short Story From 17 Year-Old Stieg Larson To Appear In New Anthology

Stieg Larsson

New York Times writer Julie Bosman reports that a previously unseen short story by Stieg Larsson—written when he was 17 years-old—will finally see the light of day in 2014:

The unpublished story is part of a new anthology of crime fiction, “A Darker Shade of Sweden,” scheduled for release in February. Mysterious Press, an imprint of Grove Atlantic, announced on Tuesday that it had acquired the collection.

No information on the title or length of Larson's "lost" tale was announced. Hopefully it's a genuinely good story, and not merely a morsel or scrap for those hungry to see more work from the late author. I suppose we'll just have to pick up the anthology in February.

Swedish writers Henning Mankell, Asa Larsson, Maj Sjowall, Per Wahloo, Sara Stridsberg, and Eva Gabrielsson—Larson's companion—are contributing work as well.

Any Millennium trilogy fans out there excited to see something new-ish from Larson?

If it's an excerpt from the unfinished Millenium book he was working on (before he died, duh) I will freak out.

Just reread the title. Nevermind.
