Eva Gabrielsson: “’There Are Things I Want You to Know’ About Stieg Larsson and Me”

Seven years ago, Swedish journalist and author Stieg Larsson suffered a heart attack. He died without ever knowing the success of his Millennium trilogy. The books – “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” – have sold more than 45 million copies worldwide. Larsson’s longtime partner, Eva Gabrielsson, says the books could not have been written without her, and she’s now locked in a bitter dispute with the author’s family. They disagree on the rights and income from the books, and the publication of a possible fourth book. Gabrielsson has written a new memoir in which she details her version of the story. The book is called “’There Are Things I Want You to Know’ About Stieg Larsson and Me.”

Guest:

Eva Gabrielsson author, architect, and political activist. Her new memoir, “‘There Are Things I Want You to Know’ About Stieg Larsson and Me” details her more than 30 years with Swedish
novelist Stieg Larsson.

If you’ve ever listened to comic geniuses Bob and Ray, represented here with a scant seven programs, you’ll recognize many of the programs they satirized in their skits. A few of the nuttier titles include Mr. Keen: Tracer of Lost Persons, Jack Armstrong: All-American Boy, Strange Doctor Weird, Luke Slaughter of Tombstone, and Dimension X. Another personal favorite is Vic and Sade.
