    we are in low-three land here. but at least i am learning things about sweden! for example: ladies in sweden just kind of shrug off sexual abuse! they are rape-teflon! this i am learning from the facts provided at the beginning of chapters, and from various characters' reactions to eve...

    Hey, kids, if you like books in which the only major descriptive moments happen during sexual torture scenes, where major characters lack motive, and where the red herrings...stink ... this book's for you! I may feel less strongly after a few days, but I am having a hard time believ...

    He slapped her hard. Salander opened her eyes wide, but before she could react, he grabbed her by the shoulder and threw her on to the bed. The violence caught her by surprise. When she tried to turn over, he pressed her down on the bed and straddled her. That's just to give you a l...

    After having leaped onto the bandwagon with the rest of everyone, I feel a certain amount of pretentious indie pride saying that I wasn't as awed by this book as everyone else apparently was. Which is not to say that the book wasn't enjoyable and exciting; it just didn't knock my socks...

    I've heard and read many complaints about Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: 1. It's misogynistic. 2. It's packed with clich. 3. It's too convoluted. 4. It's too disturbing. 5. Lisbeth wasn't autistic enough or was foolishly autistic. 6. There were too many re...

    I really don't understand the critical orgasms over this book. Amazon pushed it on me for weeks, and the minute I stepped into Borders an employee ran over and recommended it. Thinking, this really better be the best book I've ever read, I took it up to the checkstand, where the regist...

    Not sure what all the hype was about. The first 1/3 of the book showed promise. Two seperate characters who will soon cross paths. Kind of classic mystery story telling. But then it has some moments of perversity that didn't really need to be in the story. Kind of creepy and weird. I g...

    Women are raised to routinely fear rape. ?If you go at night, take a friend.? ?Check under the car and in your backseat before you get in.? ?I?m just saying it?s a good idea to know where the exits are.? ?I got you this whistle for your keychain, you know, just so ...

    Swedish people are nuts! I realize that?s a bit of a broad generalization and it sounds a bit rude, but I don?t care. Because more often than not, I?m nuts too. I was born and raised in Minnesota, and if you know our state history, you?re already aware that we were predomina...

    Larsson takes what seemed at the outset to be a juicy 'locked-island-mystery plot' and turns it first into an insightful family saga and then into a scathing political and social commentary that forces us to think about such a wide variety of themes and aspects that we normally refus...

    One of the best thrillers I've ever read. Great story, great characters, very intelligent and thoughtful. Writing is nothing special but it doesn't need to be. ___________________________________________ I finally saw the movie a couple of days ago, and I'm a bit conflicted. On t...

    This is really a 1.5 stars. Ok, there was a good mystery during the middle third of the book. THere were alot of characters. There was suspense. AND there was also those first 200+ painful pages of character introduction and back story. That equals 1/3 of the whole book. Who slogged th...

    The original Swedish title of this book is "Men Who Hate Women." If you ask me, it suits this story much better than catchier but less relevant "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," because it is in fact about men doing all kinds of horrid things to women. So here is the first warning to ...

    I have so many negative thoughts about this book. So here's a list of complaints: a.) Either this was very poorly translated or very poorly written. I've heard arguments for both. Tons of unnecessary details (all the coffee stops!), repetition of things we already know, paragraphs a...

    Thanks to the slew of Swedish and Hollywood movies, everyone knows that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a story of a kickass hacker Lisbeth Salander who has the eponymous tattoo and a knack for solving decades-old murders. Well, not exactly. Lisbeth is awesome and badass, no ...

    Nordic noir of the highest order and very entertaining. Larsson?s 2005 Swedish publication Mn som hatar kvinnor ?Men Who Hate Women? was later translated and published in English in 2008 by Steven T. Murray, by that time already an international best-seller. And for good...

    5 stars to Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. You heard all the hype about the author who died and his books weren't published. You heard that they were translated into English. You heard they were great and both Sweden and Hollywood were making a movie of it. Well, it's ...

    Now that's what I'm talking about! I've never seen the genre political thriller get mentioned on Goodreads, but here is a prime candidate for this moniker. The translation seems elaborate, genuine, and faithful enough. The places or settings in the book are descriptive. The scenes a...

    I re-read this book by audio and even though the narrator was good, he didn't do a good job on Lisbeth's voice. I wish that Noomi Rapace would have done her own voice. That would have been awesome. So, I have been a fan of this series for quite some time. I have the movie trilogy b...
