There is only one person who can tell Stieg Larsson's story other than himself - his lifelong companion and muse, Eva Gabrielsson. Here she tells the story of their 30-year romance, of Stieg's upbringing and early years, and how this shaped his morals and personality. She talks of his life-long struggle to expose Sweden's Neo-Nazis, of his struggle to keep the magazine he founded, Expo, alive, his difficult relationships with his immediate family, and the joy and relief he discovered writing The Millennium trilogy. Their story is told as a series of short vignettes, and Eva Gabrielsson speaks with rare candour and dignity, inspired only by the truth as she knows it. This book is poignant in its account of two soulmates and the life they shared, and most importantly is deeply insightful into the man everyone wants to know better, and about whom so little is known.
Eva Gabrielsson is an architect and author in Sweden of books on a variety of subjects including concubinage and architecture. She is the translator of Philip K. Dick's THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE into Swedish, and she has been involved with EXPO MAGAZINE since its founding by her long-term partner, the late Stieg Larsson.
