“Lisbeth Salander is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while.” --The New York Times The Millennium series that began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has become this generation’s international bestselling phenomenon. Disgraced crusading journalist Mikael Blomkvist has no idea of the levels of conspiracy he will uncover when is enlisted to investigate the unsolved disappearance nearly forty years ago of a Swedish industrialist’s niece. And when the pierced and tattooed computer savant Lisbeth Salander joins him, together they unearth layers and layers of secrets and scandals that permeate the highest levels of society, from politics to finance to the legal system itself--at the bottom of which lies unimaginable cruelty perpetrated on the weak. In the course of these three shocking, unputdownable thrillers, we encounter one of the most heroic of survivors, as she battles some of the most heartless villains ever imagined.

Excerpt: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (original title in Swedish: - "Men Who Hate Women") is an award-winning crime novel and locked room mystery by Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson, the first in his "Millennium series." At his death in November 2004, Larsson left three unpublished novels that made up the trilogy. It became a posthumous best-seller in several European countries as well as in the United States. Larsson witnessed the gang rape of a young girl when he was 15. He never forgave himself for failing to help the girl, whose name was Lisbeth - like the young heroine of his books, herself a rape victim, which inspired the theme of sexual violence against women in his books. This novel supplies a genealogical table to understand the relationships of the five generation-old...

Stieg Larsson Man, Myth & Mistress who created the Millennium Trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo The Girl Who Played with Fire The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest Is Lisbeth Salander a feminist - or a comic book avenger? Is her creator Stieg Larsson a feminist - or a prurient, violent hack? What is the Millennium Trilogy really about? Is it literature or vicarious violence and sex? Should Eva Gabrielsson be in charge of the Girl franchise? Should there be a second Salander Trilogy? Who built the Stieg Larsson myth, and is any of it true? Bestselling authors Andre Jute and Andrew McCoy wittily investigate the evidence - and arrive at the correct politically incorrect answers. They fix the blame for the Larsson scandal on... surprising people. Some Millennium fans will riot, most will be riotously entertained. 'Jute is great...a private godsend.' Ruth Rendell, The Times

The film's script took over six months to write, which included three months of analyzing the novel. With a production budget of $90 million, filming took place in Sweden, Switzerland and Norway over seven months. Pre-release screenings occurred in London, New York City, and Stockholm. Critics...
