Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy to be Adapted as Graphic Novels

The Millennium Trilogy Graphic Novels by Stieg Larsson

DC Entertainment announced today that the books of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson will be adapted into graphic novels. The first, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will be published in 2012.

"The intricate characters and stories Larsson created in the Millennium Trilogy are a perfect match for the graphic novel format, where we can bring Lisbeth Salander to life in entirely new, visually compelling ways," stated Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC Entertainment. "It’s a distinct honor to work on a story that is already so popular with millions of readers around the world."

"Stieg always liked comics and it will be exciting to see the unforgettable characters he created come to life on the comics page," says Joakim Larsson, younger brother of the journalist and novelist, who died in 2004 before the first book in the series was published.

No writer or illustrator were announced for the books.
