    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 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 predominantly settled and populated by Swedish and Norwegian immigrants So not only are many Minnesota residents of Scandinavian descent, myself included, a lot of our quirky mannerisms and even our accents are commonly attributed to this in [...]

    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 red herrings, and the damn Nazi red herring didn t have the usual payoff.7 Too Two many plots 8 Too hard on Leviticus I will answer these in a moment, but first I must declare that I am an unrepentant fan of this book This is one of the rar [...]

    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 you have it You were an hour later than I thought you d be We called the police Oh, that s pepper spray I keep it with me just in case I just make sure I get my keys out and check for other weapons if I m getting off work late Is this weird I liv [...]

    I really don t understand the critical orgasms over this book 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 register guy asked Did one of our employees recommend this Um, yeah And , too So of course I asked him why Oh, he replied, we ve been told to recommend it this week That should have tipped me off right there recommendations hande [...]

    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 off whilst simultaneously blowing my mind and rocking my world that sounds like either some great song lyrics or a very complicated sexual maneuver Let s go with the first option So, the good stuff the main story a [...]

    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 this book s for you I may feel less strongly after a few days, but I am having a hard time believing this book has hit the best seller lists in multiple countries Rant containing Mild Spoilers Here are my complaints 1 The entire book sets you up to think that the alleged killing s were perpetrated by one or people for compli [...]

    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 you, if you don t handle violence against women and children well, skip this novel It s hard to give a short synopsis of the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts off as an investigation of a 40 year old disappeara [...]

    Disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired to solve the decades old murder of Harriet Vanger, member of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden Aided by a tattooed, antisocial hacker named Lisabeth Salander, Blomkvist unearths horrible skeletons lurking in the Vanger family closetFor a few years now, I ve been avoiding The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Since so many people told me I just had to read it, many of them non readers, I assumed it was a lot of over hyped, dumbed down crap Well, I m [...]

    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 box set of the books that are fan freaking tastic Although, now I have to switch from dvd to blu ray I also have a couple of different copies of the books Lisbeth Salander is just freaking awesome She s so bloody smart, I w [...]

    I HATED this book I don t understand all of the good reviews that are coming in on it I hated the characters, the plot was thin ugh I can t believe I read the whole thing.


    El

    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 little taste of what one is dealing with by picking up this book If you can handle that and the previous x amount of paragraphs and the following x amount of paragraphs, you re golden If that sort of makes that thing in yo [...]

    My very first time reading a mystery detective novel Loved it.


    Riku Sayuj

    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 refuse to accept as part of society It takes an author like Larsson to shove it in our faces in all its stinking ugliness for us to stop turning the blind eye at these atrocities.Do not mistake this for a mere fictional wor [...]

    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 through those first 200 to find out that the mystery picks up How did this series get so huge And there was also a plot that revolved around rape, violence, torture, murder and endless degredation of women My question is is [...]


    Nataliya

    Thanks to the slew of Swedish and Hollywood movies, everyone knows thatThe 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 doubt there, but this book is so much than just her story, and focusing solely on that undermines the message Stieg Larsson was sending The original Swedish title isMen Who Hate Women and it is precisely what the story is a [...]


    Anthony

    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 guess there is not a lot to do in Sweden.The second part they are together on an island trying to solve a mystery that was never really engaging They had to find out what happened to a girl forty years ago Wow Exciting st [...]

    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 the plus side, it conveys the feel of the book very well, and several of the main characters are excellently realized I particularly liked Lisbeth, who was just perfect But they have taken some enormous liberties with the stor [...]

    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 events they just brush themselves off and go back to eating sandwiches yes, that is another thing i learned the swedes eat sandwiches exclusively if you excise every occurrence of the words coffee and sandwiches from the te [...]

    Nordic noir of the highest order and very entertaining Larsson s 2005 Swedish publication M n 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 reason.Complicated, intricate, and intelligent, Larsson s journalistic prose is crisp and logical Filled with interesting characters, exciting scenes and this just flows very well Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander are two of the [...]

    ode to a dragon tattooed girlshall i compare thee to a cinematic adaptation of one of my favorite books thou art genuine and less mass marketableugh cgi does shake my sense of disbelief,and the movie s adaptation hath all too short a running timemetimes too overemphasized the plot and action sequences,and often the depth of character dimmedd every sequel from prequel s quality declines,by chance, or budgets allowed to expand, untrimmed.but thy entertainment value shall not fadenor be compromise [...]


    Rachel Elizabeth

    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 about nothing just petering out Even at times when I was enjoying the plot, I felt as though I had to fight my way through dull writing.b For as dull as it is in most parts, this book is waaaay too over the top in others Butt [...]


    La Petite Américaine

    Dude, I just watched the Swedish film N r m rkret faller When Darkness Falls , a crappy movie about violence in Stockholm But it made me think back to this book, which constantly refers to stats about violence against women in Sweden Something is seriously up in Sweden Gives me the creeps even than Swtizerland Wow 500 pages and entertaining right up to the last sentence Lingers in the mind long after the book is finished Geez I didn t think it could be done in today s fiction world, except book [...]

    Journalist Mikael Blomkvist is charged with libel and decides to take some time off from his magazine Instead, he works to find what happened to Harriet Vanger, the young niece of a wealthy CEO Meanwhile, punky hacker Lisbeth Salander has her own investigations, which presumably eventually have something to do with Blomkvist and the Vanger family I don t know, because I couldn t bear to finish this It usually takes me about a day to read a book It took me an entire month to slog through less tha [...]

    A good book that got screwed up due to poor writingKeeping in mind that the only crime mystery novels I have read are novels by Dan Brown and novels dealing with financial matters are the ones by Jeffrey Archer, on this basis I can say that this book was a cross between their book but not at par with either, inferior to both The premise of the story is not so simple Meet Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist of financial sectors, but today his accusations against industrialist Hans Erik Wennerstrom are [...]
