Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy mints new club at Amazon

Stieg Larsson is hot, to say the least.

Larsson, who wrote the hugely popular Millennium Trilogy, is the first author to sell more than a million books through Amazon.com's Kindle electronic reader, Amazon announced today.

Amazon even created a new club around the accomplishment--the "Kindle Million Club."

Larsson's three books -- "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" -- are the three top books on the Amazon.com bestseller list. They're also New York Times and international bestsellers.

Larsson was a Swedish journalist who died of a massive heart attack at the age of 50 shortly after finishing the trilogy. His death and inconclusive will has led to a controversy over who is the rightful beneficiary of the considerable royalties from the three books.
