Knopf will publish The Girl Who Takes An Eye for An Eye, the fifth installment in the late Stieg Larsson's Millennium Series, on September 12.
The novel, the fourth sequel to Larsson's bestseller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will be written David Lagercrantz and translated from the Swedish by George Goulding, and will again feature protagonists Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. Sonny Mehta, editor-in-chief of Knopf, will, as he has with all other books in the series, edit the title in the U.S.
"Revenge is not a fantasy for Lisbeth," Mehta said in a press release, "and in this new book, she exacts it with a vengeance."
The novel will be published in concert with its various international editions. It will be available in hardcover, e-book, and audiobook simultaneously. The announced first printing is 500,000 copies.
The Millennium series has, according to the publisher, sold 85 million copies in 50 territories worldwide and 24 million copies in the U.S alone. Prior titles in the series include The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, and The Girl in the Spider’s Web.
