Stieg Larsson fans rejoice


Two early science fiction stories by the late crime novelist Stieg Larsson have been uncovered at the Swedish National Library in Stockholm.

Library spokesman Hakan Farje says it received the two short stories as a private donation in 2007.

Farje says Larsson sent them to a Swedish science fiction magazine when he was 17, hoping to have them published, but the magazine rejected them.

Farje said Tuesday that Larsson had described the stories as his “first tentative efforts.”

Larsson died in 2004 at age 50 and didn’t have time to enjoy the success of his Millennium trilogy, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
