    I’ve red it in Spanish, it’s very good. I think that it’s the best of the three. It resolves any misteries that there were at the end of the second book.

  • Diane from Canada says:

    I came across the first book in January in Malta, was thrilled to find the 2nd in Rome in April. It is almost worth the airfare to Europe to get the third in the series. How sad that there will be no more from this talented writer.

  • Di says:

    I loved the first and second books in the triology. Read more than half of the second one on a 14 hour train trip from Brisbane to Sydney. Can’t wait for the 3rd. Bring it on !!

  • Pete Branston says:

    Just finished the other two. So cleverly written. Salander beautifully drawn as someone with ASD. Though I felt the translation left a bit to be desired. But what a tremendous achievement. Such a tragedy that SL died so young. Second book, unbelievably, better that the first.

    I read the first book.. excellent and am anxiously awaiting for the 2nd to be released by Amazon in three days. So sad to hear Mr. Larsson passed away. His writing is brilliant and such a refreshing change .. he will be missed

  • Fredrik Bergström, Seattle WA says:

    Read all three novels in swedish and can echo everybodies sentiment; one simpy can’t put the books down and rest. I read the whole trilogy in a week, mostly nights as work got in the way. These books will be as powerful to read a second, third & fourth time as the first. I can’t wait to get the books in english so my wife can read them and understand what those sleepless nights reading was all about.

    I must thank my cousin for sending me these books to keep practicing my swedish.

    Yet another fantastic Swedish export! Sadly no more books to look forward to.

  • admin says:

    Does anyone know when the last part of this trilogy will be translated into English? I just can’t wait for it. First two parts were amaizing. I hope the third part will be as good as the first and second one.

    Best wishes for all fans of Lisbeth and Mikael :)

  • Yvonne, Atlanta, Georgia USA says:

    Is Castles in the Sky really the new title for the 3rd book? I’m not sure what was wrong with the “The Girl ____” theme of the first 2 books. I’ve really enjoyed the series so far!

  • admin says:

    Hey people. This trillogy is so amazing


  • T C Finer says:

    I picked the first two up at the airport. Been on holiday for a week and finished them both. A truly fantastic, unputdownable duo. Salander is without doubt the greatest character ever to grace the pages of a crime novel.

  • M. D. Benoit says:

    Read it in French. The translation is atrocious, the story full of holes. Overall, a disappointing trilogy. It’s a great story but it needs an incredible amount of editing.

  • admin says:

    For those still waiting for the 3rd book to be released, you might want to try the first 2 unabridged audiobooks – you can get them online from Audible. The 2nd one in particular is beautifully read! It’s bridged a bit of a gap until October!


  • Kim UK says:

    I have just read the first 2 books and loved them, when does the third book come out in english???

  • Lili from Paris, France says:

    One of the best books I’ve ever read. i’m finishing the third one right now (in French, I live in Paris) and WOW, it’s so awesome.

    Lisbeth Salander is just my favourite character EVER.

    I went to see the first movie today, and must say it was not bad. I expected to be really disappointed, but actually I wasn’t – once I got used to the actors, which didn’t match the characters as I imagined them, obviously !

    Thumbs up, Stieg.

  • Judy Goldsmith says:

    After listening to and be completely enthralled by The Girl With The Dragon Tatto, I researched Larssen and learned of his sudden death. I have mourned him every since.

    Salander is a marvelous character who is amazingly conceived.

    I’m now reading The Girl Who Play with Fire. Savoring every word and so looking forward to third in the trilogy.

    The world has lost a brilliant voice in the crime genre.

  • G. Bourne says:

    What can I say. I can’t wait to read castles in the sky.

    My lifestyle has changed since I stumbled across Steig Larson. Every spare moment has been spent reading which is most unual for me!

    The down side is there is a lot of computer speak which went over my head but I was willing to skip those bits.

  • Eleanor from Toronto says:

    Never in my life have I read two books by the same author back-to-back – I have always needed “a break” in between by a different author. Until now! Finished the first and immediately ran out to buy The Girl Who Played With Fire. And I would run out immediately to buy the third, not even having finished the second, were it available in Canada.

    I am going to pick up my studies of Swedish, which I discontinued in 1965. ‘Bout time, and this time for a good reason: I am not entirely happy with the translations. I used to be good with languages. Time to find out if I still have what it takes. This series is just great!

  • Karen in the UK says:

    I’ve just finished the first two books back to back and now I’m totally hooked on Lisabeth Salander.

    Not many guys can write a female character so convincingly.

    I can’t wait till October to find out what she does next in ‘Hornets’ Nest’. Just great stories!

    Wow, just finished the girl who played with fire — great read. Was happy to find this site to give me insight on translation and release of ‘hornets nest’ — after searching the library site for 20 minutes! This author will be missed, I really like his writing style!

  • admin says:

    Just finished reading the “Girl who played with fire” I dare say I couldn’t put it down after I started reading it. Larsson is in the league of the best writers of today. I look forward to the english version of “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’s Nest. I wish he would have lived longer to write more books!


  • Renee, Pr Geo Canada says:

    I hope hope hope the movies are sub titled into englsh. we don’t need any hollywood superstars to redo the movies. i would love to see the swedish version. Also i haven’t been able to find the third book in english yet but i keep watching. These are better than a great novel they are classic and i believe will be talked about and read about for a long long time.

  • bonita villa says:

    Am very excited #3 is coming and that it has “the girl” in the title. talk about a cliff hanger!!!! #2 left me in a lurch. I love Salander and listened to #2 on cd–the reader is excellent. Bonny, August 9, ’09

  • Sherry Cox says:

    I just finished Larsson’s first two books, and they are awesome. Now I’ll have to wait 2-3 months until his last one comes out in the U.S. I did have difficulty at first keeping up with the similar Swedish names, but Larsson does a good job of “reminding” the reader just who is who. What intricately-woven plots, twists & turns! Readers might also enjoy The Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg; I’m eagerly anticipating her book The Preacher, due out in paperback early in September.

  • Vicki says:

    I just finished The Girl Who Played With Fire. I understand Lisabeth Salander a little more & I totally think she’s rocks! It’s probably unfair to say, but I really hope they do not make any movies, these books are a readers dream…

    Going to listen to the audio of The Girl Who Played… again. I found all the swedish names confusing. I didn’t know who was who. I know the owner of the security firm, the male lead, the attorneys in Lisabeth’s life, but all the police names (and others) I couldn’t get a good grasp of. Craftidoll


  • Craftidoll says:

    To Caseydarling:

    We waited 7 extra months for The Girl Who Played…, so be prepared for a longer wait than October. To sooth your nerves, try the audiobook series by George R. R. Martin, with Roy Doltrice narrating. You won’t be able to put those down either. Hope that you’ve tried audios because they are the ONLY way to go. Have fun. Craftidoll

  • Teresa N Trenton MI says:

    Thanks to who ever translated these books into English. Two of the most powerful books I have read in a long time. Stieg makes amazing characters that I come to admire, love and hate. I am waiting patiently for the third book, not really, but I hope it is only a triliogy and this “Mysterious” 4th book was on something completely different. Sadness abounds when a writer of this caliber leaves our world, such a loss.

    Have read first 2 books – twice !! – and waiting for the 3rd in the series….. when I will put the triology on my “books I want to keep” shelf !! Roll on October – don’t know if I particularly want to see the movie – maybe that’s just me! Steig Larsson RIP.

    It’s been a while since I read a good book. I breezed through the first one and I’m almost done with the second one. I’m already looking for the 3rd and can’t find it in the US. Hopefully it will come out soon

  • MS, UK says:

    To those who are patiently waiting, you are in for a treat. I finished it last night (in Spanish) and I don?t know what to do with myself now! I cannot find anything else to match the suspense!

  • Anders, Dublin Ireland says:

    Just finished reading the two books back to back, the first time I’ve polished off 1000 pages in less than 2 weeks in God knows how long. Just the best edge of your seat stuff imaginable. Getting withdrawal just thinking about a whole month’s wait for the next one! Stieg, you are a legend, you’ve left an amazing legacy.

    I heard that the 3rd book ( hornet’s nest) will be released in English in the US and UK in Oct 2009. Here’s hoping that my info is correct!! Looking VERY forward to the final book.

  • admin says:

    the first two novels I read by Stieg Larsson have convinced me that he is/was(sadly) a writer of incomparable talent. I enjoyed them absolutely and completely. I eagerly await the third book in the Millenium Series. If you have not had the pleasure of reading these works, you are in for a treat when you do read them. I look forward to reading the “Hornet’s Nest” third book in the series. I am a committed fan of the Stieg Larsson fan club!!

  • Lamin says:

    I’ve just finished reading “The Girl Who Played with Fire”, and can’t wait to read the third of the series. I must admit I wasn’t pulled into this series easily… I found the first few pages of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” slow-going and hard to read. Then, suddenly, I couldn’t put it down! A unique character, and a well-plotted story line. How sad that “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” is the last from this talented author.

      Amazon has it listed on its UK site with a publication date of 10/1/09– 26 days

      - lucky you, I have to wait until MAY 2010!


  • admin says:

    Great books! As a Dyslexic person i hope Audible gets the third book out as an audio book as soon as possible!


  • admin says:

    Any idea when the girl who kicked is coming out in Ireland? Lisbeth is something else, but dont think she’s the sort of chic to take out for a drink. Great 2 books so far. Atomosphere created by Stieg makes me want to go and spend time in Sweden. Allso the detective series Wallander (swedish version on bb3 i think) is interesting…john


    • admin says:

      I too struggled with the first few pages of The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, but then once I got used to the strange sounding Swedish towns and names, I was totally engrossed! Really enjoyed both books and roll on 1st of October for, sady, the final instalment.

  • Adam says:

    There should be 10 books about “The Girl Who…” series. Well, that’s what the rumor was about but he passed away before he complete it all. I think there were outlines for all the other books though… Hope it could somehow get published.

    I love all three of his books. He’s was an excellent writer!

    - Adam,


  • ~Jules says:

    My brain is humming after reading “The Girl Who Played with Fire”. Lisbeth is an exceptional person and I could almost feel her pain and Kalle Blomkvist… Hahaha…

    I cannot wait to read the third book. I wish there were more books though. If it’s out in the US, it’ll probably take 8 months to a year to reach Malaysia.

    Rest in peace Stieg Larsson. *sighs*

    - ~Jules,


  • P. Dunsmuir says:

    I can’t wait!!! I have read ( and I mean never putting either book down,,Dragon and Fire books.) I want to begin right away on the third book. Hooray for Lisbeth Salander and Steig Larsson. What a huge loss that Steig Larsson has passed away! I am buying and keeping these books.

    I will read and reread them .

    Why wait 7 months? I plan to buy it in October from amazon.co.uk. They will happily ship to the US. I bought GWPWF months before it was released in the States…

  • Diane Streff, Evanston, IL USA says:

    I can’t wait for the third book. I read The Girl Who Played With Fire in two days. I’m going to reread it now at a much more relaxed pace. He was an amazing author and the literary world has a large void in it now.
