Anyone a fan? I've read the first two: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire. Pretty addicting. Gonna start The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest soon. Lisbeth Salander is a kickass character. Love her.

^I think the American version will be great. I have faith in David Fincher.

I'll need to watch the Swedish version also though.

I finished the first one about a week ago (totally ploughed through the last 200 pages). It was definitely one of the most intelligent mysteries I've ever read. The sleeze factor usually attached to American thrillers is low to non-existant. Apparantly, Scandinavians in general write thrillers a lot better than American authors can.

Do people think the second and third books are better or as good as the first? A co-worker told me they're better, but most people say the first is the best. I'll probably buy the second one tomorrow at any rate.

I just came across the short trailer today.



Rooney Mara is perfect for this. I wish Daniel Craig wasn't in it, but I'm still stoked for it.

(That version of "Immigrant Song" is by Karen O. and Trent Reznor, btw.)

^I've seen the trailer. I was disappointed at first when the Natalie Portman rumors didn't happen. But I agree. Seems like Rooney Mara has really immersed herself in the role. I think she'll do a great job. Not a big fan of Daniel Craig either though. Also glad that Reznor is scoring the film. Here's a preview:



I'd say the first book is the best. But I love the other two as well.

I finished the second one a couple of days ago. Yeah, not as good as the first. When Lisbeth crawled out of the grave after being shot in the hip, back, and head, I felt inclined to stop reading, but I finished it anyways. I'll read the third, but not right away.

Loved the first book but struggled through the other two.

I've always pictured Mikael Blomkvist in my head as Daniel Craig though so I can't really complain about the casting tongue.gif

That was one part of the book I didn't like. I know they tried to explain that it was just a boy scout pistol, but I would still think that three shots, especially one to the head would do some serious damage. That, and she still managed to dig herself out of a grave after it happened? I had a hard time suspending my disbelief. The digging out of the grave part reminded me of Kill Bill a little.

I am currently reading the second one. I love the series, but only because of Lisbeth Salander. She's so amazing and I can't wait to see the movie, but I want to read the whole series first.

I've read Dragon Tatoo and I have Played With Fire but I haven't started reading it yet. I really enjoyed the first book so I'm sure I will enjoy the rest of the series as well. Love Lisbeth. wub.gif

I took the first one out of the library a few months ago, but I had to return it before it was finished.

I took it out a few weeks ago and I'm reading it now. I really like it.

I decided to read the books after I saw the American version of the film, which I think is excellent. I have all 3 of the Swedish films on my PVR, and I'll watch Dragon Tattoo after I have finished the book.

I just finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo today.

It took me a while to get through it, but I'm really glad I read it. I loved it. I'll read The Girl Who Played With Fire but I'm not sure when yet.

I wish I was more like Lisbeth.

It's funny that you say that, cause I'm a little like Lisbeth, but I need to be more like her. I don't think I could do half the things she does.

I took out The Girl Who Played With Fire from the library yesterday so I'll start reading it soon.

The thing I admire most about her (and the main way I wish I could be more like her) is that she doesn't take sh*t from anyone, and if someone pisses her off or does something terrible to her, she isn't afraid to let them know/get revenge in some way (like Bjurman fear2.gif) Meanwhile, if I am mad at someone I usually never let them know.

Another way I wish I could be more like her is that, for better or worse, she always speaks her mind.

I think she's one of my favourite book characters of all-time. She's passionate about the things that she enjoys doing, she is so loyal to the people she cares about, and she is a lot smarter than a lot of people give her credit for.

I don't think I could do anything she does haha.gif

Wow, sorry this was so long haha.

I take a lot of crap from a lot of people, so yeah, I wish I was like her in that way too.

Yes, the speaking her mind thing is great. I usually do that, but not always.

The loyalty thing is great. And the fact that she's saved lives. That's amazing.

The way I'm like her is I dress like her. And I sort of have a dark and troubled past.

Don't worry about it being long.
