Lost Larsson rediscovered...

Two short stories by Stieg Larsson, written at the age of 17, have been unearthed, six years after the author's untimely death. Described as his 'first tentative efforts in writing', the science fiction works 'The Crystal Balls', and 'The Flies' were both rejected by Swedish magazine 'Jules Verne', and were only rediscovered when a private donator gave them to the Swedish National Library. Larsson is most famous for his Millenium trilogy crime series, including 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', the first of which was published a year after his death. The series has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. It is now up to the author's heirs to decide whether the stories will be published.
