No fourth Millennium novel, says Stieg Larsson's partner

Stieg Larsson’s partner of 32 years shot down rumors that the Millennium trilogy author left behind a fourth novel when he died of a heart attack in 2004. Eva Gabrielsson told BBC Radio’s Woman Hour that what was discovered on Larsson’s laptop was merely 200 pages that represented merely “the beginning of a fourth novel … It probably doesn’t hang together. Stieg was a spontaneous writer, he could write scenes and not knit them together until later on – he just liked the scene. You can’t call it a novel.”
