Stieg Larsson 'would not have approved of Millennium changes'

23rd August 2010

The lover of bestselling author Stieg Larsson has revealed why she is refusing to release the final novel of the deceased crime writer's Millennium series.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Eva Gabrielsson claimed Larsson would not have been happy with the changes that have been made to his works after his death and the decision to sell their rights 'like potatoes'.

She singled out the re-titling of his first book from Men Who Hate Women to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and said Larsson had refused his publisher's request to rename his books with something more commercial.

'Stieg would never had allowed that. The theme of all three books is the subjugation of women, the abuse and violence against them. That's the whole point,' the 56-year-old explained.

Gabrielsson also told the newspaper that the novelist would have taken issue with the film rights for the books being sold on with 'no respect' for his labour and intentions.

Last month, Larsson's friend John-Henri Holmbert said that the author was one month away from completing his fourth book when he died of a heart attack in November 2004.
