Stieg Larsson, the Millennium Series and

May 18, 2010

When Stieg Larsson died suddenly in 2004, all of his estate automatically defaulted to his father and brother. Larsson’s life partner, Eva Gabrielsson, was left with nothing as Sweden’s inheritance laws do not recognise cohabiting couples. The couple never married, as Larsson was a target of neo-Nazi organisations due to his investigative journalism on the subject, and marriage may have made their address easier to trace. Larsson was working on a fourth book in his Millennium series when he died, and now the manuscript officially belongs to his estranged family, but Miss Gabrielsson has refused to hand it over. Fans of Stieg Larsson’s work have now set up the website,, to campaign for Miss Gabrielsson to inherit the proceeds and administer the rights of the Millennium series. Miss Gabrielsson claims to have made significant contributions to the Millennium series and this situation is blatantly unfair. is asking for Larsson fans or anyone who is interested in ending this injustice to make a small donation to help pay for Miss Gabrielsson’s legal fees. Here’s the link to the website.

    Saw “The Girl who played with Fire” here in Hollywood yesterday. The sequel film holds up quite well. I really enjoyed both films. Gotta love our first (to my memory) bisexual heroine beautifully acted by- Noomi Rapace.

    The real life Stieg/Eva back story as presented really has me steamed. Don’t normally contribute to individual “causes” but the injustice of Eva getting pushed out after contributing 30-years of blood, sweat and tears to Larsson’s life and anti-misogyny fight demands some justice. Here’s a few Yankee Dollars for Miss Gabrielsson’s cause! Good Luck Eva!

      Well said Steve. It’s disgraceful how Miss Gabrielsson has been denied what is rightfully hers because of archaic laws and a family squabble.

      I haven’t seen the second Girl Who film yet. It’s still to be released in the UK as far as I know. But the first film was excellent and yes Noomi Rapace is stunning in the role.

      Thanks Christina,

      I’m also hoping Eva’s situation improves and we might finally see a fourth ‘Girl Who’.
