I breezed through the first two books and the first two Swedish movies. The characters are so interesting and well-developed. The plot is addictively, intricately detailed and twisty. I couldn’t wait to see the American-made movie version of the first book over X-mas…
And, it was more than I could have EVER hoped for! The movie was totally chilling, pretty true to the book, and the acting was spot on perfect. I’ll say it – I’m kinda obsessed with Rooney Mara. What a badass! (I’ve decided it’s okay to use profanity to describe her. See the movie and you’ll agree.)
Inspired by the American GWTDT movie, I’ve recently started the third book in the series: The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. (I was saving it because I didn’t want the series to end…) = ADDICTED. I love that it picks up right where the 2nd book left off. I. Can’t. Put. It. Down. I’m not sleeping at night. I’m not kidding.
Read it. See the movie. (Pass on the Swedish ones if you’re not a hardcore fan.)
Stieg Larsson: You were brilliant. Thank you so much for the hours and hours of addictive entertainment. R.I.P.
