Stieg Larsson fans support widow's legal bid

17th May 2010

The widow of author Stieg Larsson has won the support of the late writer's fans, who are backing Eva Gabrielsson's bid to take charge of his Millennium Trilogy and the rest of his estate.

Larsson, who died in 2004, left behind three completed manuscripts and a fourth, unfinished novel, which was discovered on the writer's laptop.

Despite being together for 30 years, Gabrielsson and Larsson were never married, so the rights to the fourth book belong to the author's estranged father and brother - along with his GBP 20 million fortune.

However, fans have set up SupportEva.com, which is being used as an online base for Gabrielsson's legal challenge.

Around 1,000 fans have already raised GBP 10,000 for the Gabrielsson appeal, with donations coming in from across the globe.

Gabrielsson claims that Larsson's estranged family are 'motivated by greed and envy' when it comes to taking control of the writer's estate - charges they both fervently deny.

Larsson, who wrote The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, died in Stockholm at the age of 50 as a result of a heart attack.
