Stieg Larsson

    The legacy

    Controversy surrounding the legacy Stieg Larsson spent 32 years of his life with the architect Eva Gabrielsson. However, they never married, maybe due to Stieg's dangerous work at the Expo-foundation. They did not have any children, and Stieg left no written will, so according to Swedish law, Stieg's estate was inherited by his father and brother. This sparked a dispute between Eva Gabrielsson and Stieg's relatives. She claims that they “were never a part of our lives” and that they are not the right persons handling Stieg's estate. ...

  • What Will Lisbeth Do With All That Money?
    Sean-Paul says:

    In the first movie they DID make the watcher aware, if you were paying attention. In Switzerland the banker calculated the movie and showed the figure of $3.2 billion on his calculator. Later, the newscaster relays the sum of money as "approximately $2 billion" Leaving the viewer to realize she kept about $1.2 billion. Immediately after us the scene M asks her about her "was it a good investment?" To which she replies "it was ok" lol....... you gotta catch the little bits of humor

    why so much hate for notepad? I actually use it almost daily. Of course I also use Linux as my daily OS. I love notepad because it strips out all the extra CRAP put in by other "fancy " WP's. Admittedly I'm an author and couldn't imagine using something that 'simple' as my WP, but than he admits he wants something quick and dirty PLUS, what year was this?book published (in English ) in 2010 probably written in 2005, WP's were expensive!

We are starting to favour the necessary nature of cruel complications. This anticipatory feeling which fondly insinuates something rather wrought iron. And real. She feels .. all parts of many a thing. Not everything, though. Never. Not ever. A secondary sensation, perhaps ...

  • Coffee
    Paer Burge says:

    We Swedes indeed drink a lot of coffee. And it is high quality strong Arabica in big cups. Not the small Italian espresso etc. Working abroad I am surprised how bad coffee quality is served in most countries. An average is 3-4 cups per day per citizen, but since that statistics includes children, elderly, sick, tea drinkers and so on, the real number is probably the double for the average population. It can be like this: Morning: One strong cup to wake up as soon as you rise for your working day. Arrival to work: Another strong cup to start up the working day Fika: Which is Swedish for coffee brake and a third cup Lunch: A normal lunch always includes a cup of coffee Fika: Afternoon coffee brake Dinner: Is not complete without a cup of coffee. Evening coffee not to forget...

  • Which film is best
    Phil says:

    My wife and I have been huge fans of the three books and all the movies since they first became available in the U.S. We own all three books and all the movies. The Swedish version that we own (and are watching as I type this) is the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy. As I understand it, this version contains all of the footage from the original Swedish movie as well as the Swedish TV series. We also have the American version of TGWTDT. We have each read all three books three times and have watched all the movies more than half a dozen times. My personal opinion is that watching the Swedish version of the movies is more enjoyable than the American version and we prefer to watch it in Swedish with English subtitles. We watched the entire series with English dubbing once but both agreed that the dubbing was atrocious. They could at least have used English-speaking voice-over artists who had a European accent. We both agree that the American film version is much truer to the book than the Swedish. Having said that, I have no clue as to why the writers of the American version chose to change the ending of TGWTDT COMPLETELY! I also find it annoying that both the Swedish and American films chose to diverge in the same way from the Vanger family tree as it is displayed in the English translation of the book. In both movies, Henrik calls Gottfried one of his brothers which makes Harriett and Martin Henrik's niece and nephew. It also makes Harriett and Martin first cousins with Anita and Cecilia. Those are the relationships as portrayed in both movies. According to the Vanger Family tree in the book, however, it was Richard, Gottfried's father, who was one of Henrik's brothers. Gottfried was not Henrik's brother but was rather his nephew. That means that Harriett and Martin were not Henrik's niece and nephew but were rather his grand niece and grand nephew. It also means that Gottfiried, not Harriett and Martin, was the first cousin of Anita and Cecilia. Just a trivial point but I have no idea why both movies changed it. I suppose that it could be an error in the printed Vanger Family Tree but I have no evidence either way.

  • Lisbeth’s Computer
    Mei-Lin Po says:

    Correction / clarification: It does mention that Blomquist restores and uses her PowerBook for his research and documentation pertaining to her defense. it seems presumable that it should still be there in her apartment when she returns (after her acquittal), but it mentions only her palm Tungsten, her lost car keys and shoulder bag, and a pile of accumulated mail. — Given the central role of computers in her life, and also her particular attachment to this computer, and what she went through to acquire it- I would have expected it to get a mention.
