Eva Gabrielsson and Stieg Larsson. In "There Are Things I Want You to Know" About Stieg Larsson and Me, Gabrielsson accepts the daunting challenge of telling their story, steeped in love and sharpened in the struggle for justice and human rights. She chooses to tell it in short, spare, lyrical chapters, like snapshots, regaling Larsson's readers with how he wrote, why he wrote, who the sources are were for Lisbeth and his other characters—graciously answering Stieg Larsson's readers' most pressing questions—and at the same time telling us the things we didn't know we wanted to know—about love and loss, death, betrayal, and the mistreatment of women.
