The Stieg Larsson news never ends: Eva Gabrielsson, Larson's partner, told the Guardian that she plans to finish the fourth book in the Millennium series, the one that Larsson left incomplete after his death in 2004.
From the story: "According to early details culled from Gabrielsson's memoir of her life with Larsson, Millennium, Stieg and Me, which is set for publication in France and Scandinavia next week, Larsson had written 200 pages of a fourth novel in his internationally successful Millennium series before he died. Gabrielsson wants to complete it because, she says, 'Stieg and I often wrote together.'
"Larsson's partner has refused to reveal details of the partially completed novel's plot, but promised that its charismatic but damaged protagonist Lisbeth Salander 'little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies.' And, she said, she will only finish the book when she gets undisputed rights to Larsson's work from his family, who inherited the author's assets when he died intestate."

Does she believe the family will part with those rights, guaranteed to make them millions? And couldn't Mr. I'm So Feminist Larsson have bothered to write a will to include his partner? Just asking...
