Curse: Stieg Larsson's partner Eva Gabrielsson says she put a Viking curse on those making money out of the late author
The controversial fourth book in The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo series has been released today with intrigue, secrecy and with a viking curse to add to the thriller.
Fans of Stieg Larsson's best-selling Millennium series have been rushing to get their copies of The Girl in the Spider's Web - despite the late author's partner calling for a boycott of the book, which was written by someone else.
Eva Gabrielsson, Mr Larsson's partner of more than three decades, said he would be 'furious' about the publication, timed to hit the shelves today to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the release of the hugely successful Girl with a Dragon Tattoo.
She said Larsson had began work on a fourth book centering on the popular protagonists before his untimely death from a heart attack in 2004.
The couple were not married and Larsson left no will, so his estate went to his brother and father. Gabrielsson, 61, lost a bitter battle with them to manage his work.
The new novel is penned by David Lagercrantz, best known as the ghostwriter of the Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic's autobiography.
Ms Gabrielsson said the release smacks of greed and admitted that she has put a Viking curse on those who have made money from his name
