Fourth Stieg Larsson book 'does not exist'

3rd August 2011

Claims that another book in Stieg Larsson's Millennium series exists are inaccurate, according to the author's former partner, Eva Gabrielsson.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour broadcast this morning, Ms Gabrielsson said it is true that Larsson began to outline a new novel and wrote the first few pages, but there is nowhere near enough material to constitute a full book.

Larsson died in 2004 before his three completed novels in the Millennium series - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - were published.

They have gone on to sell a combined 30 million copies worldwide, though Ms Gabrielsson said only 200 pages of the fourth novel were written, with little structure binding them.

'It probably doesn't hang together. Stieg was a spontaneous writer, he could write scenes and not knit them together until later on - he just liked the scene. You can't call it a novel,' she added.

Ms Gabrielsson, who was Larsson's partner for over 30 years, remains locked in a legal battle over his estate, which was inherited by the author's father and brother following his death.
