The Woman Behind the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

For 30 years, Eva Gabrielsson lived with and loved one man. In 2004, he died, but something else was born: his Millennium Trilogy. Stieg Larsson's three books about Lisbeth Salander, a hacktivist and feminist with a knack for revenge, are some of the top-selling books in history. When Larsson died without a will, the tens of millions of dollars that were made from his three books became the property of his father and brother, leaving his companion Gabrielsson with nothing. New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi speaks with Eva Gabrielsson about her new book, "There Are Things I Want You to Know About Stieg Larsson and Me."
