Eva Gabrielsson's Stieg Larsson Memoir Hits Vanity Fair

It's amazing to think that seven years ago, Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson died walking up the stairs to his flat, soon before his magnum opus--The Millennium Trilogy--became a global bestseller, selling over 20 million copies, spawned a movie trilogy ($212 million worldwide) and a Hollywood remake.

Finally, well before the David Fincher Girl With the Dragon Tattoo hits theaters this December, Vanity Fair is publishing an excerpt of "There Are Things I Want You to Know" About Stieg Larsson and Me.

The memoir is written by the woman Larsson lived with for 30 years but refused to marry because he thought he was protecting her, Eva Gabrielsson, who has said that she played a large role in his books and has held onto the laptop computer that holds potential sequels. She plans to finish his fourth book in the series, in which she has said that Lisbeth Salander “little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies.”

Unfortunately, as is the case with many magazines this days, VF wants you to pay to read the story either via iPad app or buying the July issue on the newstand. This is only a tease. Here's an early review, and a short blurb.

Gabrielsson will be coming to America to promote the book, which has already been published in Europe and Scandinavia, and hits stores here June 21. She will speak with NPR's Diane Rehm at the House of Sweden in Washington, D.C. on June 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm.
