Let's party: Unpublished texts by Stieg Larsson appeared

Today I've found in an online newspaper a huge present for me and for millions of readers:
In Stockholm have emerged early manuscripts of the cult author Stieg Larsson, who died before his 'Millennium Trilogy' became an international bestseller. "We have get material from a small magazine called 'Jules Verne Magazine', where some manuscripts of Stieg Larsson were that were never published", said the deputy head of the Swedish National Library, Magdalena Gram.
So far I've read "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl who Played with Fire". Saying that I have "devoured" them may be more appropriate, to be honest. I've never read a book with a character so amazingly similar to me, before. Never. Obviously, I'm not a 100% Lisbeth Salander (I hate maths and I am not a hacker...) but similarities are still very big.

I've started twice "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest", but I didn't want to finish it because... it's the last book from Stieg Larsson and I didn't want to know that I can't read nothing more from him, in the future.

Now... it's not the last book anymore. Now some science fiction novels, written by a 17 years old Stieg Larsson, are waiting for me, someday.

Let's party!
