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.

“Stieg Larsson never lived to see the skyrocketing success of his Millennium detective novels, and his companion Eva Gabrielsson has not profited from the more than 40 million-plus books that have been sold.
During an interview in New York last week, Gabrielsson, who lived with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo author for 30 years, discussed her life with Larsson, the ongoing battle with his family over copyrights, the likelihood of a fourth book, her calling as an architect and why she will never forgive and forget.”

March 6, 2012"One of the most gripping back-stories of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, etc.) was the tale of the author’s 32-year relationship with architect and activist Eva Gabrielsson, and the fact that, because they were never officially married, she was cut out of any say in, or profit from, Larsson’s literary estate. Here she tells the story of that relationship, with many previously unseen pictures and including the letter Larsson left for her to be opened after his death."
July 28, 2011"In the aftermath of the Norway attacks, we look at the work of Stieg Larsson, an author known less for his extensive research into right-wing extremism in Scandavia and Europe than for his international blockbuster books, published after his death and known as the Millennium Trilogy: “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.” As part of his passion to "counteract the growth of the extreme right and the white power-culture in schools and among young people," Larsson founded the Swedish Expo Foundation and edited its magazine, Expo. We go to Stockholm, Sweden, to speak with Larsson’s lifelong partner, Eva Gabrielsson, about the research they did together before his death." -- From the Democracy Now! website

July 12, 2011"Gabrielsson’s book, ‘There Are Things I Want You to Know’ About Stieg Larsson and Me, is an attempt to regain custody of Larsson’s legacy, not only from his family but also from a world hungry to commercialize his every aspect . . . Fans of his books looking for an intimate peek into the life of a man who summoned a dark, scary version of Sweden will not be disappointed, but that understanding does not come easily. The book is a short, highly emotional tour though a widow’s grief and dispossession, and the details of the couple’s life together are jarringly juxtaposed with blood feuds and score-settling." -- New York Times Book Review
