Stieg Larsson 'did not finish fourth novel'


Swedish author Stieg Larsson did not finish a fourth novel before he suffered a fatal heart attack, his long-term partner Eva Gabrielsson has told BBC Radio 4's Woman Hour.

Eva Gabrielsson said that there was "not much truth" in reports that he left another manuscript on a laptop. She said while he had written some new pages, there was not enough to shape another novel.

The writer died before the publication of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first novel in his Millennium trilogy, which tells the story of Lisbeth Salander, an introverted private investigator.

Ms Gabrielsson, who was with the author for 30 years, also said many of the trilogy's descriptions of Stockholm "came directly from a manuscript I was working on".
