Eva Gabrielsson and Stieg Larsson. In ""There Are Things I Want You to Know" About Stieg Larsson and Me," Gabrielsson accepts the daunting challenge of telling their story, steeped in love and sharpened in the struggle for justice and human rights. She chooses to tell it in short, spare, lyrical chapters, like snapshots, regaling Larsson's readers with how he wrote, why he wrote, who the sources are were for Lisbeth and his other characters graciously answering Stieg Larsson's readers' most pressing questions and at the same time telling us the things we didn't know we wanted to know about love and loss, death, betrayal, and the mistreatment of women.

Praise For…

“One of the most gripping back-stories of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, etc.) was the tale of the author’s 32-year relationship with architect and activist Eva Gabrielsson, and the fact that, because they were never officially married, she was cut out of any say in, or profit from, Larsson’s literary estate. Here she tells the story of that relationship, with many previously unseen pictures and including the letter Larsson left for her to be opened after his death.”—Globe and Mail
