Steig Larsson turns in grave as third Millennium installment released in English

Steig Larsson turns in grave as third Millennium installment released in English

Late Swedish novelist Stieg Larsson, infamous for his Millennium trilogy, may be turning in his grave as his supposed GBP50 million estate falls into the hands of his estranged father and brother instead of going to his partner of 32 years, Eva Gabrielsson–editor and purported co-author. The Millennium trilogy, including novels “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", “The Girl who Played with Fire” and “The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”, is one of the literary sensations of the decade, and follows protagonist crime-solving computer hacker Lisbeth Salander.

The first three books (of which two have already been translated in English) have sold 32 million copies worldwide. This number though, is set to increase, after the English release of the third title on the 25th of May this year. A fifth book, currently unpublished, exists on Gabriealsson’s laptop, but falls under Larsson’s estate and must be handed over to the father and brother of the late author.

According to Swedish law, cohabiting partners do not merit any hereditary rights such as that of a spouse and so Gabrielsson is to hand over the manuscript with the rest of Larsson’s estate. Accusing Erland and Joakim Larsson of being “motivated by greed and envy”, she has entered into legal protest to keep the highly coveted 320-page manuscript.

Larssons’s fans from around the world have begun the SupportEva.com campaign to raise money for her legal fees.

“The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” is available for pre-order in English from WantItAll for the Best Price of R378.
