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.

I am not interested in reading the fourth book, as father and brother have acted appalling ....Stieg wanted his partner to finish the book, not his father nor his brother they had no right to interfer

I think out of all the people who would have an idea of the 4th book is his life partner Eva Gabrielsson. Its so disappointed she has to fight against his brother and father to get what should rightfull be hers.

Perhaps the publisher and author hired to write the fourth book could do the RIGHT Thing and pay tribute to Steig's life partner by paying her royalties from the book sales!

Well I am not going to read the 4th book written by David Lagercrantz. I will not support Stieg's father and brother! They appear to have behaved appallingly towards Stieg's life partner.

Swedish law is so old fashioned. Any country that doesn't let the life partner

have at least 50% of the estate is unbelievable. The father & brother are money grabbing hypercritical morans.

I would like to read about Lisbeth going after her twin, and her half brothers Zalenchenko mentioned in book 2 that were handling parts of the family business. With some help from Plague and Hacker Republic of course.

All the millions of Stieg Larsson's "Millenium Trilogy" are impatiently waiting for the 4th book.

Could mediation between Eva and Larsson's father and brother?

For sure money is the reason they are holding back. Please make an amicable agreement so we can ALL benefit....

Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, which includes The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is getting an addition: David Lagercrantz completed That Which Does Not Kill, a continuation of the story, in November, and the book will arrive on shelves in 35 countries in August.
