Eva Gabrielsson Hopes to Finish Fourth Millennium Manuscript

Eva Gabrielsson, the life-partner of the late Stieg Larsson, has written a memoir, but she also hopes to finish an incomplete Millennium series manuscript.

While no plot details have been revealed, The New York Post reports that Gabrielsson is promising fans a Lisbeth Salander story where she “little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies.”

Gabrielsson explained that she wrote together with the late novelist, but she cannot finish the book without the “undisputed rights to his [Stieg's] work.” According to Knopf publicity director Paul Bogaards, Joakim and Erland Larsson still retain those rights and they have no intention of publishing this mysterious manuscript.

There have been several suggestions on what fans can turn to while they are waiting on book 4 (or 5). For a more nostalgic title, how about the Pippi Longstocking series? According to an interview with an old colleague of Larsson’s, a grown-up Pippi is the inspiration for the character of Lisbeth Salander. Evidently, director David Fincher agrees. Quoted in a recent W magazine article, he said: “Lisbeth is the goth Pippi.”
