Eva’s memoir, entitled There Are Things I Want You to Know about Stieg Larsson and Me for its US release, will be coming out here in June.
In the book, she writes that if she were given control of Larsson’s literary estate, she could finish the fourth Millennium title, for which there are only notes. It was to be called in Swedish Guds hämd, or God’s Revenge.
Yet another article about Eva’s memoirs, this one from the Daily Mail. It’s got an interesting perspective—a bit more “woman scorned” than most of the others—and Eva (Stieg’s longtime partner, in case some of you aren’t aware) always has good things to say. Check it out!
Per Oscarsson, the actor who played Holger Palmgren in The Girl Who Played with Fire, and his wife were unfortunately killed in a house fire early this month. My condolences to their family.
“With the right character, an author can defy death — and live on in the hearts of readers. Think Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes. Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot. And now, Stieg Larsson and Lisbeth Salander, his world-famous girl with the dragon tattoo.”
An interesting article about Sodermalm, Lisbeth’s neighborhood in the books.
The LA Times has released a small article with a few tidbits about Larsson’s family maybe having the manuscript for a fourth book after all. His father and brother are going to appear on CBS on Sunday morning to talk about the manuscript’s history. There’s some really contradictory information being presented here, so I’m curious, to say the least. Anyone who’s in the US like me, try and catch the interview on Sunday morning!
The role of Lisbeth has been landed by Rooney Mara, an unknown who worked with David Fincher on his Mark Zuckerberg biopic The Social Network. I suppose we’ll all have to see her in that film before forming our opinions.
Are all of you happy with this news, or do you feel a bigger name should have gotten the Lisbeth role?
