I have dedicated this thread to elaborate over the different characters in the Millenium Thrilogy as to who they are or to which “clan” they belong and suggest keys to how to understand nominations as for instance the MC-gang Svavelsjö MC.
As I grew up in Sweden, although, I was born in the USA i can contribute with local knowledge and understanding to some of the swedish language.
Please feel free to post your keys and suggestion on how to understand “names”.

I have now read all these three books (in Finnish), and I have to say I really liked them. SL’s language and style of writing are nothing exceptional, but the stories are fascinating.
However, I’m kind of surprised with the amount of product placement in these books. It seriously bo ... Read more
Stieg Larsson mentions numerous other mysteries that Blomkvist is reading in the millenium series. I am wondering if anyone has looked any up, has a list etc… so I can do the same. I borrowed the books, have now given them back and didn’t have the foresight to write down the titles before I r ... Read more
It’s hard to believe Larsson was the second best selling author in the world in 2008. There were some nice parts of the story line and Lisbeth is a compelling character but almost all the other characters were dull and the dialogue was often wooden or plain unnatural. Time and again he proved t ... Read more
I had put the first and secomnd book on hold at my local library. After a long wait I finally got my hands on one of them, but it is the second book ‘ The girl who played with fire’. I’m now hesitant to starrt it though, without having read the first one. Is it better to read them in order or does it not matter which one I read first. Should I wait for the first one?

Disgusting news that the family does not want to share the profits with Eva… she had to live with him! I have a feeling that was extremely difficult. To the family members… give Eva her share before the lawyers get it. Really odd that this is happening in Sweden… where is the equality?... Read more
If we start off defining $1 billion as 1,000 times 1 Million, Lisbeth has used a minuscule amount of that money.
I figure when she arrived back in Stockholm off the Oslo train, she had the following:
49 Million Kronor in Cayman Island Bank
1 Million Kronor on her Wasp Credit Card
10% of the bonds cashed into currency and placed in 30 numbered accounts in 9 private Swiss Banks
90% of the bonds–still physically bonds in a security deposit box in one of the private Swiss banks (I think that 90% represented over 2 billion kronor)

When I bought the books I searched for some information inside about the translation, who did it, and did the same person “modernise” the story to include all the modern dates and computer references etc. I found myself doubting the validity of a story written in the 1940's/50's that included ...

The celebrated Millennium series written by the late Stieg Larsson became a worldwide hit in the literary world at the turn of the 21st century. The series centered on two characters, the shy Lisbeth Salander and reporter Mikael Blomkvist (aka Kalle Blomkvist).
