Larsson's Partner Says No To Money

Stieg Larsson’s life partner, Eva Gabrielsson, has declined an offer of 2.8 million US dollars extended by the late author’s father and brother, news bureau TT reports.

“We offered her the money so that she could live an economically secure life,” brother Joakim Larsson told TT.

Stieg Larsson left no will, meaning his partner of 30 years has no legal claim to his estate under Swedish law. In the five years since the bestselling writer of the enormously popular Millennium trilogy died of a heart attack at the age of 50, the two parties in conflict over his posthumous earnings have never spoken directly to each other about the dispute.

The Larsson family's current offer was made in major Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet last month.

Eva Gabrielsson does not want to comment on her decision.
