  • Gayle, New Jersey, U.S. says:

    I’m hoping that the movies will be released widely in America – picked up by a distributor who can provide financial and marketing support so that lots of people can enjoy. How can we (those who have enjoyed Larsson’s novels) help to accomplish this?

  • Spike says:

    I’m adding my plea from Australia for the English subtitled Danish Millenium trilogy movies; sans dubbing, Clooney and Pitt (for cryin’ out loud!). I’m a fan of Scandinavian film and tv, and with the listed cast and crew involved in the first movie, I reckon I’ll be adding this to my collection…and I’m sure my local DVD store will too.

      what? What happens to Lisbeth????? I can’t wait for the third book, or the movies to be available in the US!!!!

  • Kerry from Adelaide South Australia says:

    My son found the movie on line and gave me the DVD. If you loved the book, you’ll love the movie. Lisbeth is cast exactly as I pictured her. The books are extremely popular here in Australia, I was number 17 out of 45 on the reserve list before the third book even came out. Please release the movies here as well – but with the Danish cast, not americans.

  • kate – nanaimo canada says:

    I sincerely hope that this film will be released in Canada with subtitles. I trust the Swedes are quite capable of interpreting one of their own author’s works without any help from Hollywood. Refreshing to have the opportunity to experience actors from outside Hollywood’s “charmed circle” of pasteurized actors even though I think people like Natalie Portman and Ellen Page could do justice to the title role. Lets give other actors the opportunity – and please – no Quentin Tarrantino!

    I just came home and watched all three movies in a row. I was honoured to be one of the few who watched the European premiere (Skandinavian lands excluded) of the third movie. It was thrilling, even doe the books have more to tell us, the stories told by the filmmakers have the same ambiance.

    Are these going to be released in England with subtitles? would much prefer that than hollywood ruining yet another amazing story. The story is sweedish, so the films should be.

    Ditto. How do we get the films in the states? Subtitles in English are fine, great. And no to a Hollywood version.

    I’ve loaned people the books & they call me wanting more. They read the books until 3 a.m. It’s a passion.

    Does anyone know when we’re getting the film?

    - Gwen,


    • JC, says:

      The longer version is probably the TV mini

      -serie shown in some countries. A tip if you like Swedish film, see the movie “as in heaven”. Amazon have it.

    The films are one of the worst adaptation of a book I´ve ever seen. Millenium deserve a better deal. It seems to be only a attempt to make money instead of making good movies

  • chris says:

    I heard that The girl with the dragon tatto recently won the people’s choice award (or something…) at a screening in Palm Springs, California. I’m not from the US, is that an important award? I’m just curoius if the film is getting any buzz in the US and how it will do when it opens there.

    Does anyone know if they will release it in all major cities or only in selected places and sort of treat it as a minor “art” film.

    Awesome. Salander rulz. A book who makes you addictive, a book that doesnt let you sleep until you are finishing it. And for those that read the book and didnt like the movie(what did you expect at? dont compare just enjoy).

  • Mark says:

    Is there an american version coming out or will this trilogy simply be available in dubbed or subtitled versions. I ‘m ok with both just as long as the quality of the books is translated to the movies!!

  • Guido St Nom La Breteche says:

    couple of months ago I could buy at reduced price all 3 books at onces. Read them quickly after reading a small article about it in a magazine. As all fans I was over the moon about the 3 books. Then I looked at movie one biografie on DVD. The director and scriptwitters who did the casting found the perfect actors. So scandinavian /SWedish. perfect.

    Don’t see the films without reading the books I advise.

    just saw nr 2 in the cinema last sunday. Again very good work. Unfortunately the filmakers can’t put 650 good pages into a 2 hour film. They had to leave interesting topics and situations completely out. but in March I look forward to see film 3 and I fear that “this is it” then for Millenium. Or …? who knows the Sweeds have something cooking with more books and films, but I guess the current situation with inlaws and ex girldfrined and biographies will make it complicated.

    Today was written in the media that ex collegues from Stieg claim he hardly was a good writter, and that his girls frined did most of the writting.

    Bit painfull after such a succes post mortum.

    Time will tell, but if this is true it burst a bit the bubbel of admiration I had for the man.

    - Guido St Nom La Breteche,


  • admin says:

    The Filmproducers from Yellow Bird in Sweden really made 2 ( I saw them ) and probably 3 very good movies. Swedish spoken and with subtitles according to the country you live. Seeing dubbed movies is per defenition wrong. The thought that Hollywood is interested to buy the right and make thier version is not very attractive. You can’t transport the typical scandinavian settings of this story to Hollywood. I heard Tarrantino is interested.

    I can only deduct he like the bloody parts and want to make his version style Kill Bill. Lot’s of killing and bloody scenes. But I fail to see how Hollywood can do this and make it a blockbuster. I as a Millenium fan would hesitate, unless proven different.

    • Adam Townsend, says:

      I hope they can find a talented author to continue the stories. They found a guy for James Bond; as I understand it he did a fair job in following up Ian Fleming’s style. So….here’s hoping. And hoping for a TV series in the US –NOT replicating the already perfected features starring the amazing Swedish talent as Ms. Repace. All who were cast in the movies (and so far I’ve seen the first two) are not to be beat.

      - Lew,


    • the swede, says:

      The 3rd movie is available to download from certain torrent web sites. It is the continuation of the Swedish television production encompassing Larsson’s last two books….and is great. I can’t envision any Hollywood actress doing a better job than Noomi,,,she owns the role of Lisbeth

      - hawaiiannoises,


  • Kelly, USA says:

    I’ve LOVED all three books and the first two movies (though I had to watch the second without subtitles). I’m American and I do NOT want Hollywood to get its hands on these movies, they will be ruined. They must stay as they are…the actors are EXCELLENT, the setting is essential, the language is important (just read the subtitles if you have them or muddle your way through like I did). I cannot WAIT until I’m able to see the third movie, I have no idea when that will be since the third book isn’t even release in the US yet.

    - Kelly, USA,


    • makko, says:

      After seeing Inglorious Basterds, I beg to differ. Tarrantino would be the perfect fit for this film — or Martin Scorseze

  • Marielle Revett says:

    I loved the three books and I miss Michael and Lizbeth!! I am very disappointed to know that the Swedish jurisdiction didn’t allow the 4th book to be finished by Mr. Larsson’s partner. Any updates about this? Never saw the films in US. Are they going to be played here?

      I know what you mean, but since they’re pulling from source material and they have good actors I’m remaining optimistic. They released a trailer for it a few weeks ago. You should look it up on youtube and see what you think. Daniel Craig should be good in it at the very least

Only today, having logged onto this website, have I found out about the sad and untimely death of Mr Larsson, so sad, but appreciate his writing.

  • Vasquito – Scottish Borders says:

    Even the very best films rarely do justice to really good books. So what chance do these films have of doing justice to the very best of books – I wish them the very best – and great success – and YES I will be in the queue to see them – but already I feel that the Lisbeth in my head is the REAL Lisbeth – and that (the very beautiful) Noomi Norén is an interloper :-)

    Undoubtedly the best adult fiction written in my lifetime. The sad loss of Stieg Larsson has deprived modern literature of a rising star. However I will not dwell on that – but rather be infinitely grateful for the three books we were bequeathed, for Mikael Blomkvist, and particularly for Lisbeth Salander who I suspect will haunt me forever . . . .

    Saw this film last night was shocked by the sexual cruelty our Herione endures, but equally I was rooted to the spot at the gritty action as we followed the two main characters unravel the clues to get justice. And although violent I enjoyed this movie dispite not reading the book first. But now I’m hooked and can’t wait to read book an eagerly await the next movie. Brilliant.

  • Guido Ruysschaert France says:

    This evening Canal plus in France will start the TV series ( ea monday for about 10 week or so )

    They took the cinema version and added about an hour per film to make the series. So a bit closer to the book, which laks a bit in the first tow films. To many good items from the book are not in the cinema movies. Also more violence and sex scenes appartently. As it is on a pay channel and French version I’ll await untill they are for sale in retail shops.

    In Belgium film 3 will be in cinemas on 19 Mai. When I went to see film 2 in Belgium in Januari, I was alone in the cinema. So this country didn’t go to wild about the films to my mind.

    There’s also a Swedish TV serie called “Wallander”. Same procuding company Yellowbird and some actors are in it from the Millenium films. Very good police serie and soo Swedish / Scandinavian. Good plots and good sense of humor. Well done Sweden in a world where US/UK blockbusters take all credit.

    Again such a pitty the creator did not live to enjoy it all.

      I totally agree with your comments. Noomi Rapace played the role of Lisbeth exquisitely and I only wish that the other 2 movies had already been completed. To the Director, Producer and everyone else involved in the making of these movies – pleeaase hurry up!

      I have read the 3 books in French, loved them but yes, too sad when they were over (thinking of reading them in English to see whether there is a difference!) I’ve just watched yesterday the first part on dvd; I was a bit anxious as I thought it would be really hard work to bring to ‘life’ the overall book and atmosphere! But well done, this chapter was absolutely amazing and I can not wait to see the other 2 parts!! Brilliant actors, brilliant production – the challenge is not quite over yet!!

  • Chris R says:

    I can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed books as much as I enjoyed this trilogy. All three books were just incredible!! I enjoyed every page and was so sad when I finally finished Hornets Nest because the story was over.

    The film (Dragon Tattoo) was AMAZING… Loved it!! and I certainly won’t be rushing to see the “Hollywood Version” there is no way on earth that Hollywood will do justice to these wonderful books, and in any case there can be NO other Lisbeth Salander than the fantastic Noomi Rapace. I can’t wait for the next two films to be released here in Australia.

I also admire that the astors look like real people, often American movie actors are too baeutiful and perfect.

    Hope the ‘Hornet’s Nest’ will be out here soon.

    (The DVD of ‘Tattoo’ was dubbed into English quite well. As expected, the dubbing was a bit more complete and nuanced than the subtitles were. I’ll watch the ‘Fire’ DVD when it comes out with dubbing – just for comparison’s sake.)

    This movie was fabulous. The books are clearly the better of the two however I must give credit to the producers/directors and actors.

  • Christopher Greenleaf ? Avondale, RI, USA says:

    Having linguistic access only to the non-Swedish-language versions of the three Stieg Larsson books, audiobooks, and films has been a small and understandable disadvantage to many of us. Still, the two languages in which I?ve fascinatedly drunk them in (English, German) give an excellent idea of the seriousness with which the fine translators have gone about their work. Getting to the shaded, nuanced heart of each of the original films, however, really requires that you hear the subtly done, emotionally rich Swedish soundtrack. Viewing subtitles (the English & German ones are good) allows you to step directly into the complex, culturally advanced emotional landscape of the films. The English dubs don?t quite pull this off.

    I?m afraid that the Hollywood versions will necessarily be much less concerned with the psychologically charged subjects and milieus of the epic Millennium Trilogy than were, for instance, the big-budget, surprisingly sensitive BBC remakes (with Kenneth Branagh) of that other big Swedish hit, Henning Mankell?s darkly riveting Wallander stories. Da Caprio play-acting inside of Mikael Blomkvist?s head? Er, thank you, NO. Noomi Rapace owns the Salander rôle, with her keen abililty to portray an obsessively private, vulnerable persona while exercising her character?s potent abilities realistically, sometimes shatteringly. She?s not an entirely impossible act to follow, perhaps, but the depth of the character ? as off the three films as a whole ? is no doubt too tough a challenge for the emotionally limited and sexually simplistic ?vision? prevailing on modern-day Sunset Boulevard.

    In German TV on January 23rd will start the original and originally made for the swedish TV version of the three books in six parts. For every book 2 x 90min. For the cinema version from every 2×90 film version for TV 30min were cut to make it a 150min version. This may explain a lot of what is missing in the films.

    From February 11th on this “director´s cut” will be available but as far as I know only in German.

  • DKBerry Arkansas (USA) says:

    My wife and I listened to “… Tatoo” on audiobooks and read the others right away in a series. We think that the plot line carried across the three represent an intricacy and quality of writing that is simply incredible. I cannot remember reading one other novel let alone three with such well diagrammed and gripping plot lines and intimately deep character development. Fantastic! Simply Fantastic!

    The movies were another case. We watched on consecutive nights via Netflix on line all three of the Yellowbird productions in Swedish with English subtitles. “… Tatoo” was quite good and I wondered how a Hollywood production would be able to compete. However “… Fire” and “… Hornet’s Nest” were poor and quite a disappointment.

    Direction was unenthused. Other than Noomi Rapace the acting lacked energy and emotion. The actors simply spoke their lines … there was little emotion in the dialog. There were significant gaps and critical differences in the plot that missed key points. If you had not read the books you would have been totally lost.

    All three books were fantastic … the first movie was good … the second and third were terrible. This is the best example ever of “the book being better than the movie”. Such a disappointment.

    I saw the first movie although it was just a chance purchase. Oh boy! I was gripped from the first minute and went out the next day to buy the second book. That was read in a day and a half. The third book took 2 days days to read. I’m not normally a novel reader. I prefer history or politics but Larsson is brilliant at evoking the posssiblity of a giant conspiracy in a western democratic liberal state. I won’t be watching the US film. Nothing could be better than the Swedish films. The acting is good and the quiet understated acting of Nqkvist is superb. The Americans always miss the point; they’ll make it as Johnny Depp meets Catwoman with a plot written by a 5-year old on a postage stamp.

    The “american version” fails on all fronts. The USA cannot make a serious thriller of this nivaeu because the action dominates the acting and the realism is always “monitored and censored.” This regardless of Daniel Craig’s popularity, there is never a cutting-edge level of performance from him or anyone else in this rendition. In the original trilogy DVDs, even with english voice-overs, the acting and dramatic pulse of the 3 films was so excellent, I couldn’t wait for the next DVD in the trilogy to begin. My condolences to Hollywood, but they should have left this re-filming to others or never taken it on in the first place!

    • Michel Menard Vancouver, says:

      They did do a dubbed version of the original, and it was horrible. The subtitled one is infinitely better: you can still hear the tone, inflection and script interpretation in the voices of the original actors. I’ve seen the first 2 Swedish ones, and will see the third next weekend. I have no idea why they made another one, except to mollify the American illterates who can’t read subtitles and chew gum at the same time. Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace were perfect.

    The American version of Girl With The DragonTattoo suprised me by being very well done, tying together the complicated layers as the movie progressed. It did help to have read the book.
