    Lady Sherlock,

  3. Thank you very much for this! Here in Austria I read all three parts now – within 4 days – and then I tried to investigate. They both look like I would have imagined them to be. I am very much looking forward to this movie and hope, that it will be to see in Austria too. We are coming! Cheers.

  7. L’attrice scelta non assomiglia per niente alla descrizione presente nel libro, io suggerisco la cantante Carmen Consoli

    It couldn’t have been a better time for me to have A “can’t put down book”. The U S Stock Market crashed and a candidate for our Presidency threw despicable innuendos at his opponent, I withdrew from life for two days and read my book. I spent my time with The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, and will resurface tomorrow. So sad that Stieg Larsson had such a short life.

    bjfear,
