The unfinished manuscript

The status of the unfinished books

When Stieg started writing the Millennium series, he laid an outline of a total of ten books. Before his death in November 2004, he had finished the first three books and was well underway with the fourth. In an email written to a friend a month before his death, Stieg says that he has finished about half of the fourth book. Stieg says that he has written the beginning and the end, but that the middle part is not finished yet.

Many readers have asked if Eva Gabrielsson, Stieg's life companion, could finish the fourth book, as she was deeply involved in the writing while Stieg was still alive. Eva herself is very positive, however, Swedish jurisdiction obstructs such a solution.

Stieg & Moi

The book "Stieg & Moi", written by Eva Gabrielsson and Marie Francois Colombani comes out the 19 Jan 2011. The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has read a rawcopy of the book and can reveal several interesting scoops.

Eva says in the book that she could finish the fourth manuscript but is, as of this moment unable to due to the legal dispute between her and Stieg Larsson's father and brother. The Swedish title of the fourh book is also told, and is said to be "Guds hämd" (english translation: God's revenge).

Aftonbladet has earlier published the news that the fourth book would take place in Canada, about 75 miles (120km) north of Sauchs Harbour on Banks Island. It is also told that the fourth script would mainly focus on Lisbet Salander, and how her personality changes when she starts to deal with her conflicts from the past. Her tattoos are explained and you are told that each and everyone represent a person who has hurt her throughout her life, both mentally and physically.

Please let Eva finish the fourth book. I am almost finished reading the trilogy for the 3d time. There is so much unfinished work in the 3d book.

Devastated that the fourth book seems so far from reach. Please let Eva complete it!

I wish that I had the blessing to meet Stieg,and now You. My Sister is half Danish and half Swedish. I grew up with Pippi. I have had so many conversations with my Husbands Sisters about the "Trilogy" They don't see the common thread. We have enjoyed the American version of The Girl With the Dragoon Tattoo....But it will always be the other Movie. We watch them both whenever they are on. Thank You and God Bless, Lois McPhillips

I wonder how Lisbet Salander would deal with the father and the brother? Some convenient computer hacking and mayhem perhaps. I would like to think so!!!
