STOCKHOLM (AP) - The longtime partner of the late Swedish crime writer Stieg Larsson said he wouldn’t have approved of an H&M clothing line and other merchandising linked to this week’s release of a Hollywood adaptation of his hit novel, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
She expressed concern that the political dimension of his books, including the feminist undertones, would be overlooked in the hype.
Gabrielsson and Larsson weren’t married and he didn’t leave a will, so it was Larsson’s brother and father who inherited the rights to his works when he died at age 50 in 2004. The movie opens in the U.S. on Wednesday.
