Stieg Larsson's longtime girlfriend-roommate Eva Gabrielsson was being supported in her travails since Stieg's sudden death thru the website supportEva.com; but after publication of Eva's own book in January 2011, the site no longer requests monetary support; verbal support is very welcome, however.

Serial reindeer stranglings, the death of a sturgeon expert, and the headless body of an unpublished writer move Chief Inspector Svenjamin Bubbles to arrest tattooed hacker Lizzy Salamander. But journalist Mikael Blomberg believes that Lizzy was framed, and his quest to find the real killer uncovers "a shocking story of corruption and perversion that reaches to the highest echelons of the world’s largest producer of inexpensive ready-to-assemble wooden bookcases".
