This book is not written by Stieg Larsson and though it may mention the writer in the title and throughout the manuscript, it is more about the process of grief. When the book is actually published (August in France is an educated guess), it will be Eva Gabrielsson’s story of how she dealt with the sudden and unexpected death of her common law husband. Details are sketchy on the books release, mainly because of the immense popularity and financial success that has now surrounded the story of The Millenium Trilogy.
In a twenty minute interview done with a reporter for Swedish National Television (English subtitles are supplied) Ms. Gabrielsson actually reveals the plans for two books. According to the soon-to-be author, the other book will concern common-law marriages in Sweden. No title for the common-law book was mentioned, but the other title might be called “The Year After Stieg”. Again Eva seems to be deliberately vague in order to avoid too much advance publicity. Visit this site and watch the interview for details. It is well worth the time.
In fact much valuable information is presented in the interview concerning Mr. Larsson’s feminism and some insights into what early events in his life might have spurred him on to write the three novels with the female heroine.
