From the Delaware News Journal:

The Stieg Larsson Phenomenon Continues:

The Tattooed GirlWe may never see another novel about Lisbeth Salander, aka “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” But we do have books about the hacker-heroine’s creator, the late Stieg Larsson.

Out now is “The Tattooed Girl: The Enigma of Stieg Larsson and the Secrets Behind the Most Compelling Thrillers of Our Time” by Dan Burstein, Arne de Keijzer and John-Henri Holmberg (St. Martin’s Griffin, $14.99). It includes new material as well as previously published essays.

On June 21, “There Are Things I Want You to Know About Stieg Larsson and Me” (Seven Stories Press, $23.95), a memoir by Larsson’s longtime lover Eva Gabrielsson, arrives in the U.S. She and the Larsson family have been battling over his literary legacy since he died without a will in 2004 at age 50.

Gabrielsson says Larsson wrote about 200 pages of a fourth book, to be called “God’s Vengeance,” and that she still hopes to gain the legal rights to complete it.

“I can simply say that we often wrote together,” and the books are “the fruit of Stieg’s experience, but also of mine,” she says.

Burstein, co-author of “The Tattooed Girl,” says there is no doubt Gabrielsson played at least a limited role in Larsson’s books.
