After Stieg Larsson's untimely death, his partner and lover Eva Gabrielsson becomes tired of keeping quiet about their relationship together and decides to spill every secret in her biography "There Are Things I Want You to Know" about Stieg Larsson and Me.
With their scary incidents and occurrences in Swedish politics, Stieg's writing (the beginning of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo saga and Stieg's numerous books about his opinions in politics) and their romantic relationship together, this book keeps you craving more and more details about his and her life.
She tells the story of how they met, their intense involvement with ugly political scandals and most of all, Stieg's tragic and mysterious death. Eva also goes on and tells her readers about Stieg's father and brother and her struggle with them over the custody of Stieg's other works. Which may in fact be another Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist installment.
I've read many biographies, all of them interesting and intriguing in their own way, but Eva Gabrielsson's biography is special. It's about her lover, Stieg (not husband, which you learn more about in her book), a New York Times bestselling author with a suspicious and heartbreaking death (which you also learn more about).
Stieg was a beautiful, smart and amazing man. An absolute genius and artist with words, and Eva was very lucky indeed to have him in her life.
