Title revealed for third Robert Galbraith book!

Earlier today, J.K. Rowling took to Twitter to tell the world that she – or rather, Robert Galbraith – has finished the third Cormoran Strike novel. The second in the series, The Silkworm, was released last year, and we learned not that long ago that the series has been optioned for TV by BBC. This started a conversation between Jo and Robert, which fans found totally captivating – something that Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) also commented on.

Jo’s agent, Neil Blair, also got involved, congratulating the author.

Jo then teased fans about the title, promising that whoever was able to guess what band had a song of the same name would win a signed copy. It wasn’t long before there was a winner.

The correct answer was “Career of Evil” by the band Blue Öyster Cult. In case you’re wondering, here’s the song in question.

One fan pointed out that the song contains these lyrics, something that Jo swiftly responded to.

But of course, this also got us wondering: Is this a clue toward the book’s contents? What does this mean for the book, the third in the Cormoran Strike series? Does the title refer to Cormoran, or is it something to do with his case – whatever that case is?

Little, Brown has not yet revealed anything else, apart from the fact that it will be released this coming autumn. Hopefully, we’ll learn more – and get a blurb for the book – very soon.

We can’t wait to read the next installment in this series. But now, we’re just left asking, “What is the book going to be about?” Look out for our thoughts coming soon here on MuggleNet!

What are your theories? Are you looking forward to the book? Let us know in the comments!
