Father and brother: Stieg Larsson wrote another "Dragon Tattoo" book

Larsson So apparently the rumors are true, if a bit skewed: Stieg Larsson's family reports that the Swedish author, who died in 2004, did write another book in his The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo series. Only it's not the fourth in the series but the fifth.

Father Erland and brother Joakim, who will appear at 9 a.m. Sunday on CBS News' Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, say they've seen and held the mysterious unpublished manuscript that has been the subject of rumor since the Millennium trilogy became an international bestseller.

Larsson originally planned a 10-book series, but wrote the fifth book before the fourth because "he thought that [it] was more fun to write than book number four,” says Joakim.

Erland and Joakim, who inherited the rights to the books and the millions they generate, are immersed in a legal battle with Larsson's longtime partner Eva Gabrielsson, who declined CBS' request for an interview.

How and why did Larsson die?


How: He died of a heart attack in 2004; I can't tell you why except that obviously he had a bad heart!
