    I’ve just officially finished reading the girl with the dragon tattoo for the second time cover to cover. As soon as I finished it the first time I restarted it just to recatch all the details. Salandar as a character carries through the entire story, holding her prowess like an unasked for gift and just ends up as a character you respect. I’m so upset to hear we must wait for 5 months for the English version of the second book. Let’s start a petition to get it finished!!

    Good read. Complex characters, interesting plot, and sophisticated writing. A Swedish Janwillem van de Wetering or Nicholas Freeling. The book is a pleasant discovery indeed.

    Just finished the English version. I spent too much of the previous nights with reading because I just could not put the book down. The plot and the characters, complex but it all fits together. I was a bit disappointed by the end which is not really an end, until I saw on the cover that this was just the first volume of a trilogy. Waw. Can’t for the other two.

    I thought I’d add a comment from the east coast of the U.S. I’m a high school math teacher and a mother of two girls. My six year old, on learning her Dad was going to watch a basketball game and be out of the house at night, insisted that I stay on the same floor as her. I couldn’t even go down to get my toothbrush! Fortunately, I had my Kindle with my copy of Girl with the Dragon Tatoo on it, slightly less than half finished. I climbed under the down comforter (it’s cold here in Maine!) with all my clothes on and was finished at 2am. What a wonderful book! I can’t wait for the next one. Given the bits I’ve seen on the web, a lot of discussion, love, and approval of Lisbeth, who I loved too of course, but I also thought that our Kalle was a really interesting character too. Best wishes for the holidays.

  • R L Baker in San Antonio says:

    I had to turn in to the library my copy of The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo today. I was so sad! I got obsessed with this book. And Larsson doesn’t end the book with a “polyanna” ending. I’m excited to read more about this appealing character, Lisbeth Salandar. And of course, I really enjoyed the main character, Mikael.

  • Josh L. in Stockholm says:

    Books this good do not come around that often. Now that I live in Stockholm it is even more exciting to read. I am obsessed as well as the others. No matter where I am going if I can sneak in a page or two on the train or in a waiting room I will not miss an opportunity until the book is finished. The first two were amazing and I can’t wait for the third. Thank you Stieg. You are definitely missed.

  • Kate J. in Phoneix AZ USA says:

    I am 2/3 of the way through Dragon Tattoo amd love it! I was not at all surprised to find that Mikael reads Elizabeth George (and listens to the Eurythmics!…) as Mr. Larrson’s writing is as wonderful as Ms. George’s. The way the story is set up, and in which the characters are introduced reminds me very much of her style. How very sad that we have lost this wonderful writer and human rights advocate. We can always use another strong voice for the underdog.

    Hi! I am a student learning Swedish, living in California.

    The novel “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” was probably my favorite of the year.

    I think reading the book in Swedish will help me greatly.

    I am looking to find the trilogy here in southern California.

    Does anyone know a bookstore that may sell these?

  • anfrasht in medway says:

    A compelling read consuming very late nights. Did I miss threads about the early childhood issues responsible for Lisbeth’s differentness or was the allusion to Asbergers enough of an explanation?

  • D Hviid in Paris says:

    I have now read the book in English, Danish and French, and felt compelled to write regarding the translation of the book into English. I read the entire trilogy in Danish in three days straight, suffice it to say I swallowed them whole. Then I immediately read the English version and was bitterly disappointed by the extremely poor translation. It is such a shame that the translation seems to have been rushed as I was left feeling incredibly sad at how the soul of the book had disappeared. For example the use of the phrase ‘bump and grind’ to describe the first sexual assault on Lisbeth was so utterly disgraceful, and tantamount to welcome an accusation of a second ‘literary sexual assult’ on Lisbeth by treating the act in such a laissez faire manner).

    The publishers would be well advised to commission a new translation – especially as I hear that book number two is even more sloppily translated.

    The changing of the title is equally disconcerting – I really do feel this has made the book lose much of the essence of what Larsson is really railing against – misogyny.

    I do want to end on a positive note which is that all if you who have yet to read the last two installments – do it on a weekend as I promise you will be riveted! Easily the most compelling books written in years!

  • Christine Huang in Toronot says:

    I just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The beginning was a bit slow, but quickly, I was captured and absorbed by the mystery of the missing girl from the Vanger family. Mikael, the journalist who is strongarmed to investigate the mystery is the type of man who has a lot of appeal because of his determination, integrity, warmth and flaws. Lisbeth, the heroine, is a woman who wins your sympathy as you see her struggle to be unaffected and untouched by life. I read the book in two days–just couldn’t put it down! And re-read the relevant parts. Run and get this book! By the way, I can’t wait until I can get my hands on the next two books up here in Canada!

  • Twila Ross in Houston says:

    I listened to this book in my car. I was so completely taken with the complexity of the characters and the complicated layers of story line that for a week, I did not remember getting to or coming from my job. Many times I could be in some parking lot just trying to get to a place where I could feel “comfortable” to wait until later to know what happened next. In my life time, I have read 2-3 books a week and I must say this book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is absolutely in a league of it’s own. I gave several copies of this book to those I love at Christmas. I am deeply saddened to know there will only be two additions to this wonder group of characters. I am thankful for this book however and completely recommend it to anyone in love with fiction.

    For D Hviid in Paris:

    I have read Millinium (the 3 books) in French early 2007, and was not bothered with the translation at all. Like most people I know, I just loved it and had trouble to get hooked with the same passion on a book after that.

    I wonder why you did not comment on the French version (only the Swedish and English versions). Have also been wondering of reasons why the French version did so very well, at least in my province, as it has been on best-selling lists for a very long time.

  • Gary O’Connor in Southampton says:

    I loved this book for all the reasons mentioned above. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the English translation, but I enjoyed the old British spelling of words, like “gaol”. The title in Swedish, I understand, is “Men Who Hate Women” which would not likely go over well with many readers in the U.S. Anyway, the book is as much about Salander and Blomkvist as with the criminal cases they (re)solved. The book just transported me to Sweden -it was like a vacation! And who knew that they drank so much coffee in Sweden?? The next one is coming out this month. I’m so psyched!

  • Keikobad in Helsinki says:

    Hi everybody! I am Finnish, but as Swedish as my mother tongue, so I read this book in Swedish. I had very high expectations as I had heard a lot (really a lot) enthusiastic acclaim for it from my friends and relatives. Since then I have tried to find a forum to write about it, but with no luck, so I am happy to find this forum.

    The book is Total Crap. I am so disappointed, and mostly because I cannot understand people who appraise it. It consists 90 % of totally irrelevant, frustrating description of the hollow characters, incidents and locations that things are happening. The ending is easily derived from the first pages of the trip to Vanger home. He wanted to leave the estate, without lissening to the story of the old Vanger, and this fact was repated 16 times in succession. It reminded me of “Da Vinci Code” in, that it was also a very poorly written book of shallow characters and plot, yet was a megahit.

    I will try to read the two subsequent parts of the trilogy, at least they got an official award, but this first one was absolutely a waste of time. Stupid!

  • David Page in Bridgewater says:

    It’s the best read I’ve had in quite some time. ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’ is even better. One small point; as Lisbeth is leaving the basement room in ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ she flicks off the safety on a Glock pistol. I didn’t think Glocks had safety’s?

  • Christina in Warwick says:

    This is one of the few books I have ever read where I wished I hadn’t read it so when I go to pick it up it would be new and thrilling all over again. Not many books come along where you feel this way. After I finished it I went to the library to see what else the author had written and was upset to find out that he died. I see that some people have read the next book already. Is it available in Europe?

    Just a quick word to say I loved the book, and since some people had trouble with the translation, I was amazed at the talent of the person who translated the novel in French. It really flowed, and there wasn’t a fault. Best thriller I’ve read in years, and excellent translation.

    I have just finished the English version and I have to say I LOVED it. I found myself totally lost on Hedeby Island and absolutely could not put the book down! I became totally obsessed by it and have just ordered the second book from Amazon. The wait is killing me. How will I survive the wait for the 3rd book which won’t be out in the UK till July 09! Such a pity Larsson did not live to see the success of his trilogy and how sad there won’t be more of Lisbeth and our Kalle after Book 3….

    I have finally got round to reading the first book in Norwegian and couldn’t put it down. I had intended to keep it as my crime novel to read during the Easter holiday. It was brilliant and now I have to see the film. I went out today and bought the next two books. The Girl Who Played with Fire is in the English translation and the third one, Luftslottet, in Norwegian. The Norwegian translation read very well. I shall be interested to see what the English translation is like.

    “The girl with the dragon tattoo” is a wonderful story, fully deserving of the high praise expressed in almost all the comments above. I totally fell in love with Lisbeth Salander. She is surely one of the greatest new creations in modern lit. I am just about to begin reading “The girl who played with fire”.

  • Larry in Fresno says:

    Having lived and worked in Stockholm two times it was really a treat to find a novel that transported me to my favorite city. I read the English translation and being from California I found the dialogue crisp and perfectly natural. As a retired social worker, who for eight years had a caseload of sexually abused children, I was toatlly enthralled with the style and flare with which Lisbeth dealt with her guardian. I would have loved to have turned her loose on a few of our less that admirable offenders. I have been studying the Swedish language for years and Larsson’s novels are giving my the incentive to press on. I’d love to read his stories in Swedish. As has been said by others, it is so sad we lost such a talented writer and political advocate.

  • Mike says:

    I found this book “unputadownable”. The interest was there from the beginning right up until the last page. I cannot remember when l found a book as such.

    The fact that is was what l do enjoy in books and does not have perfectly formed type of people as the heros also played well with me.

    Being part Swedish and only having in Stockholm for a part of a day am now wanting to the visit the place for much longer.

    Hope we do NOT get an Americanised version of the film in due course and would love to see the original film if and when it comes to England.

    Have read the second book and that was just as enjoyable and am looking forward to the third and hopefully not final book; there is some talk about theer being another unpublished fourth in the series.

  • Chris Luxford-Noyes in Kent says:

    I’m a third of the way through ‘Girl’, and in agreement with the majority of posters, I love it! I’ve read Guillou and Mankell, very enjoyable they are too but this is so much darker. I love losing myself in a book and this is no exception. I’m not widely travelled but I love to use the narrative to imagine what the locations are like.

    Being someone who can only read English, I couldn’t say whether the translation is a hit or miss affair but I can only imagine that many books don’t translate well into another language from the writers native tongue. Nevertheless from what I have read so far, it’s not too bad.

    Once I’ve finished this book I’m sure I’ll suffer withdrawal symptoms until I can get the next one.

  • Kevin Poole in Gloucester says:

    An absorbing and thoroughly enjoyable book. I bought it to read on a recent holiday to Australia. I was so engrossed in it that my family had to occupy themselves for a few days as the book wasn’t put down for long. I admire Stieg’s literary skill and plot construction immensely. Lisbeth Salander is a fascinating character. Totally original and unique. I read several other books by other authors on that holiday including “White Tiger” but it’s Larsson’s wonderful story that captivated me totally. In fact I even ordered from Amazon via an internet cafe in Cairns, Australia (and I’m now reading) The Girl Who Played With Fire. This ensured I had delivery just as I returned to the UK! The third book of this Millenium Trilogy is already on order too.

    Stieg Larsson has certainly had an effect on me as until recently I would happily declare “I tend only to read non fiction”. At last I have found an author that has given us some intelligent, clever, exciting and captivating material. How refreshing as there is so much dross out there.

    His death at such a young age is very sad and the causes he fought and campaigned for have lost a great contributor.

  • Jay in London says:

    I have to say, I don’t get this argument about Larsson highlighting misogyny. He’s writing graphic depictions of women being raped and murdered in grotesque ways as entertainment. The novel is stuffed full of cliches – the biblical codes, the women in the basement, the incest – James Patterson has been churning out this kind of trash for years – and filling up the best-seller lists of course (rape sells). Salander with her kick-ass revenge scene is about as a realistic as a computer game character – she’s got Asperger’s and is supposed to be emotionless but nevertheless falls in love with our “hero” (who is naturally irresistible to women) – the hero who doesn’t seem to feel any responsibility for her, though he has some mild twinges of guilt about neglecting his daughter. We’re still supposed to think he’s great though… yuck. A comment on misogyny? This IS misogynistic.

    Dear Jay in London, get a life. I’ve just finished the 2nd in the series, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and so far this is an extraordinary and original character and series. As for womens’ issues it is enlightening beyond any literary fiction I’ve read (and read many) and with the added pleasure of absolutely entertaining, riveting reading. Unputdownable is the word for sure, and it’s a rare gift to have books so importent and compelling both. Please somebody figure out how to bring back Stieg Larrson. Three books about Lisbeth Salinder just aren’t enough.

    Dear John in Ireland. Only want to tell you that the swedish title of the first book in fact is Men who hate women…You may find it strange but that´s the way it is. I can also tell you, and others, that there might be a fourth book! I watched a documentary about Stieg Larsson on swedish television a couple of weeks ago. There was an editor representative interviewed who said he was very optimistic about the chances. Stieg Larsson had almost finished the fourth novel in the Milleniumsuite when he passed away and now it seems that, hopefully at least, we can meet Lisbeth and Mikael again sometime in the future…

  • Adrian C in Singapore says:

    Just finished Book 2. Bought it two days after reading Book 1, was desperate to get my hands on it, and glad to see that bookstores in Singapore have caught on to how popular it is, and stocked up on it.

    In retrospect, Book 1 felt more like a prologue of Book 2.

    Nevertheless, for both books:

    - does not insult the reader’s intelligence, and for me it was great personal satisfaction to read them, they don’t feel like some lightweight paperback novel

    - intellectually stimulating and satisfying

    - the plots were some complex and yet make sense!

    - on the downside, the Swedish names and multitude of characters was a challenge to keep up

    Have not read a book (or series of books) so satisfying for at least a decade! Certainly on the level of the great epic classics of old times, orders of magnitudes higher than Grisham or Dan Brown.

    I found out about this book accidentally. I happened to come across a discussion of actors who might play Liabeth well. The post mentioned one of my favs, Kate Moennig, as a possibility. The title tole me something interesting about ‘the girl’. I wondered why she would have a tatoo and why of a dragon? The name, ‘Salander’ seemed to get into my head; I bought the book and wow…I found myself envious of Michael and in love with Lisbeth. Steig Larsson is/was a fabulous writer. I haven’t has such a good time in years. Who would have thought…

  • Paros in Birmingham says:

    Just finished. Have the 2nd in hand. I read it in 4 days. Ridiculously good.

    As I read I made brief notes. 1 to 3 word chapter summaries and a list of characters introduced in each chapter. This helped immensely.

    Paros in Birmingham, I’m reading 2nd book (“played with fire”) and would appreciate a copy of your notes and list of characters if you feel like posting or sending it. Thank you.

    I simply love this books. I passed them in the book store time and time again but a friend promised a read of a life time, she was not wrong! Currently, I live and breath these books. THey are refreshing, current, somehow show us a life way beyond our own quiet existence, Larsson has provided a whole new generation of crime writing. His contribution will set a whole new stand. WEll done Stieg and Eva too

    I’m new to this, so sorry if I’ve posted this twice. Just wanted to know what is the difference between the book with the girls back on the cover and the book with the girls face on the cover of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    I have not read as good a book as this one in a long time! It’s too bad that the good die young – we could use more books like this one!

  • Joe Simmons in Gilbert says:

    I am obsessed with one and two, and am waiting for three from the library. I tended to overlook the objections of others, since I found the characters and plot totally entertaining. I’ve read all of Baldacci’s and Grisham’s works two respected American writers, and even though Larson tends to create more detail at times, it believe it was warranted. As a business writer, I can’t imagine the work it takes to put a trilogy like this together. Well done.

  • Pytor in Stockholm says:

    This book is a cliche-ridden mess. Absolutely no depth to the characters whatsoever. And Mikael being a stand-in for Stieg is really tacky – especially as he’s portrayed as a complete do-gooder with god-like pheromones. Women can’t seem to resist him. It should be renamed to: Stieg Larsson Super Stud!

  • GG in Ireland says:

    The narcissism, hubris, and misogyny in this book is overwhelming. There were times while I was reading it that I

    was almost completely convinced that I was reading some twisty psychological thriller ala American Psycho with an

    unreliable narrator who was presenting an idealized version of a story which would later be revealed to be nothing

    of the sort. I was wrong, its just the worst thing I’ve read in over a decade.
