The Swedish publisher of the best-selling “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” trilogy said Tuesday it has hired an author to write a sequel to the series by Stieg Larsson, who died in 2004, reports the Green Bay Press Gazette.
Larsson’s longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson, who has been in a legal dispute with Erland and Joakim over the rights to the trilogy, told daily newspaper Aftonbladet that she finds it “tasteless” to try to make more money out of something that is already so successful. “I guess I think it’s greedy. It’s already a multimillion industry,” she was quoted as saying. Gabrielsson and Larsson never married, for serious reasons of safety, as Larsson was a target of right-wing hate groups, which he worked for years exposing and speaking out against. When Larsson passed away suddenly without a will, Gabrielsson was left without the rights to his work or to any of the profits of a project which she contributed hugely to.

The 92nd Street Y is a major New York City venue for author events, but up until recently it was nearly impossible to acquire video footage from these events – The 92Y recorded all of them exclusively (with a standing rule that no video be taken of their events), but because their videos did not appear online, they were inaccessible to the public.
In the 92Y website’s “Talks and Readings” section, you can now find links to a huge library of videos from past lectures and author readings. You can search for lectures by date, topic, or just browse through the wide selection of recordings. Among these are Seven Stories Press authors Eva Gabrielsson, speaking on There are Things I Want You to Know about Stieg Larssen and Me, Ani DiFranco on Verses, James Lecesne on Trevor, as well as SSP author Ralph Nader.
