Steig Larsson's books have sold 45 million copies worldwide. But Larsson died before his series, including 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', took off. Larsson's partner of 32 years, Eva Gabrielsson has been battling his family over the author's estate since his death. Gabrielsson tells her side of the story in her new memoir 'Millennium: Stieg and Me'. The book is only available in France and Sweden. It will be released in the United States later this year. We get a preview from Slate contributor, Sasha Watson.
