The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Controversy

Filed under: Literary Tidbits,The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo — susanbright @ 7:29 pm

In April The Friday Morning Bookclub read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. As we always do for our April meeting, we invited our spouses to read and discuss the book along with us. Several of those in attendence were so hooked on the book, that they had to run right out and read the second book in the series, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and at lease 3 people that I know of continued on and read the third, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest. Now it has come out that there is actually a forth book! Unfortunately there is a good chance that no one will ever have the opportunity to read it. This manuscipt is still on the author, Stieg Larsson’s lap top. As most of you probably know, Stieg Larsson died before any of his books were published and to make matters even more complicated,  he was not legally married to Eva Gabrielsson, the women he had spent the last 32 years with. According to Eva, she and Stieg worked together on the novels and she is not willing to have the book published unless she is given the rights to manage the novels, a condition that Stieg’s family is not willing to accept.
