Larsson's Brother Moves To End Family Feud

The brother of acclaimed Swedish author STIEG LARSSON has reached out to the late novelist's long term partner in a bid to end a bitter family feud which has threatened to tarnish the author's legacy.
Larsson created the bestselling Millennium trilogy, which has been turned into a popular Swedish film series and is about to make a Hollywood cross-over with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara taking the lead roles in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Eva Gabrielsson, Larsson's partner of more than three decades, has been locked in a dispute with the writer's father and brother over his estate since his death in 2004.
Gabrielsson insists she is not interested in the profits from the books and movies - she just wants to be granted the rights to Larsson's work so she can complete his final, unfinished novel.
She has documented her legal struggle in new memoir, Millennium, Stieg and Me, and the book has prompted Larsson's brother, Joakim, to speak out and he's now urging Gabrielsson to get in contact so they can resolve their issues face-to-face.
He tells the AFP, "So many falsehoods and misleading statements have been repeated in book form, I would like to present my picture in greater detail. For some time now, Eva Gabrielsson has spread a distorted picture of Stieg Larsson. No single person can have a monopoly on the picture of Stieg Larsson and his life... There are lots of things which aren't true in that book. We only want to say what the truth is and say 'this and this is not true' and then we can put an end on this story between us and her and move on.
"We have no intention to use the money in any other way than as Stieg intended... (Gabrielsson) is part of my family still and she's always been a part of my family... I don't want to speculate in what will happen (with the unfinished book). But I hope she calls me."
