I've read all three book in The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson and absolutely loved them. They are at the top of my list of favorite books. Last week I watched the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and then decided to read the first book again to see what the movie missed. The movie was good but the book was so much better, which is usually the case. It will be interesting to see what the American version will be like when it comes out. The original title in Swedish is "Man som hatar kvinnor" or "Men who Hate Women." So glad the title was changed. Stieg Larsson died soon after he finished the last book but had started on a 4th book so there is hope that this isn't the end. I really want to know more about Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist.
Here is a link to an excellent article in the NYT about Stieg Larsson and the books:
