I watched the US version of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo when it came out in 2011 mainly attracted by the name of it , the time passed and a friend recommended me to read the Milleniun trilogy which was made up not only of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but also included The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who kicked the Hornet’s Nest , the two other discoveries have also captivating names.
This is small summary of what the three book are all about:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned by the powerful Vanger clan. Her uncle employs disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist and tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders, they begin to unravel a dark family history
The Girl Who Played With Fire: Lisbeth Salander is now a wanted woman, on the run from the police. Mikael Blomkvist, editor-in-chief of Millennium magazine, is trying to prove her innocence. Yet Salander is more avenging angel than helpless victim. She may be an expert at staying out of sight – but she has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest: Salander is plotting her final revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander is ready to fight to the end.
In addition to the US version of the film “The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo” , the three films made it to the big screen on Sweden so the three Swedish films are a must-watch after having read the books. Hopefully the US Film industry brings the other two books to life soon.
