    LISBETH does not die in reality. Its the biggest lesson learned ever for her. The antisocial Lisbeth dies. The pizza eating pooter geek lives on and finds peace. I hope.

    I certainly like the Swedish version better than the American version. Just as I predicted. Rapace owns that character. Even though she is discribed in Stiegs books as extremely thin, anorexic looking which Fincher got in his version, Rapace nailed it with her looks, defiance and stature and her personalty. In a way if you really think about it Lisbeth Salander had to be strong to deal with what she had to in life, getting beat up and raped and riding a motorcycle Noomi Rapace fit that part. Fincher created a ghost like character, sometimes she looked like a vampire. She wasn’t strong enough to carry that roll. She spoke too softly, she did not convey toughness like Rapace did to be believable. The 2 Lisbeths kept thier emotions inside. I had fun picking out little mistakes, such as Rapace going to the grocery to pick up some food, which you coud put in 5 big gocery bags of which she has to walk all the way home with, impossible.! It should have been a few items and threw them the bag,She was not planner of meals, she mainly lived on pizza.But its fun to find a flaw,and say well, his books aren’t too perfect. Read them all,too bad I cound not read all 10, it really is a never ending story. Maybe Stieg could deliver the other 7 down to us, 4th Salander goes to Canada to chill out but encounters something there she did not bank on, She eventally tells Blomkvist after she already investigated it for 3 months. He cancels 2 meetings in Stockholm, books a flight in Canada, they meet in a cafe’ House. The first time he has seen her in a while, and Blomkvist noticed something different about Lisbeth… she looks better. She has a really cute haircut, not like the one before. She looks healthy. She had taken off a lot of her tttoos but not the Dragon. He was really glad to see her, but he wanted to get down to busines. Why was it so important she had to see him now?

    Not for many years have I read books that have stayed with me, I am now just about to see the second of the DVD’s, well portrayed and very little left out. Superb fiction and what a loss to the literary world is Stieg Larsson.

  • D. Wood says:

    I am almost finished the 1st book – really great. But what I kinda of thought was that Stieg Larsson is a ‘pseudonym’ in respect for a female writer. Just a thought.

  • j m l o’Brien says:

    hi i have just finished books 1 & 2 and starting 3 i am not usually a big fan of the thriller but Stieg Larsson has written such wonderfull plotts it so hard to put them down. I do hope that the 4th book can be eventually published. And what a loss to the literey world. A very sad loss

    well.. I’ve read all three books recently – it’s just impossible – such a writer.. such heroes of the books.. I mean – they’re quite alive.. they’re sort of perfect.. they’re quite vulnerable.. they befriend & help each other.. they keep living.. I sort of “understand” smth more in this world tks Stieg Larsson.. about women particularly – I’m in deep respect with them.. & – there happen decent people in this world.. God bless you all here & Stieg there

    Very stiff and dehydrated. Have only just inserted

    the contact lens which gives my eye long sight, and

    straightened limbs cramped with the effort of staying still long enough to consume 800 pages in 2 days.

    All I can say is that it is a compulsive read, and I still

    have the third novel to go.

    Are all the movies being released in the U.S.? Or is there aplace to buy the dvd’s?

  • Doctor_B says:

    The books are great, but why on Earth they used non-metric in English translation?? It’s painful to read about INCHES of snow in Sweden, which switched to metric at the end of 19th century! As a European temporally leaving in the US, I’m fed up with non-metric and really didn’t enjoy seeing it in Larsson’s books!

      I reiterate the comment about the start of the 1st book & I am glad I stuck with it. I don’t think the film should be “hollywoodised” & actors & locations should be authenically Swedish – even if the Swedish film is subtitled – we can cope. Massive shame that Steig Larsson has missed all this – his partner should now recieve the profits.Lorna Peynado – England

    • PF, says:

      I have to agree with Gaberoons,if I had put the first book down after trying to get through the first chapter I would have lost out. I am totally hooked. I hope that the movie will be released internationally, dubbed or with sub titles.

    • Jorge Brown SeguiGold Coast/Australia, says:

      Why worry about the translation? And why read it in different languages. The story lines must be all the same. Why start looking for negatives in three great books? I read all three books and enjoyed every minute of them. I then recommended them to friends who had just as much fun as i did, without any thought of what they would be like in another language. I am just thankful i had the chance to read these books.

  • Gaberoons says:

    If I hadn’t had two friends telling me to persevere with the first forty pages of book one I might have given up as it is quite turgid. But how glad I am to have continued. I think a little is lost in translation (some slightly clunky phrases) but what a fabulously gripping story line to one and two – am half way thru.

    Forgot to say in my earlier comment that Reg Keeland has done a fantastic job on these books – so clever, one would never know the books weren’t actually written in English. Just great.

    - S Roberts,

    • R. Bush, says:

      I would normally say I preferred the native (Swedish) version, on the basis of it being more culturally ‘genuine’; but i think the Fincher film was not just better, it was one of the most stylish films i have seen from the opening credits – which were extraordinary – to the finale. Carig and Mara really nailed those characters. Craig has always been a highly watchable actor with great charisma and depth so perhaps not surprising. Mara was a revelation tho. To be fiard the Swedish version was made for TV so just didn’t have the same production values of the Fincher film.
