The Battle over Stieg Larsson

by thiszine

Stieg Larsson may have died in late 2004 but his enormously popular Millennium Trilogy – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , The Girl Who Played with Fire , and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest , – seem to have a life all their own, with each installment of the trilogy having sold millions of copies in Larsson’s native Sweden and abroad. The New York Times documents the ensuing battle over Larsson’s estate between his brother and father and his lifelong partner who, according to the Swedish government, has no claim on his earnings because the two were not legally married.

Larsson is also an enigma to his many fans, though an article in The Telegraph gives small insight into Larsson’s personal life and the influences on his novels, which include Pipi Longstocking.
