Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Best Seller!

DC Comics/Vertigo will publish the official graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson's "Millennium Trilogy," starting in Fall 2012 with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, the international publishing phenomenon. Each book in the "Millennium Trilogy" will be adapted in two hardcover graphic novel volumes.

Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden's wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption.

Review:

"The late Stieg Larsson's slick potboiler is wildly popular in both movie and novel form; its tale — disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his unorthodox ally hacker/investigator, Lisbeth Salander, struggle to discover the truth behind the disappearance of Harriet Vanger decades before — is familiar to people around the world. Now it has been transformed into a graphic novel, this installment covering the events of the first half of the novel. As with the movies, translation to graphic form requires streamlining the novel, discarding details not absolutely essential to the plot. Despite a tight adaptation by crime novelist Mina, this version preserves many of the flaws of the original, the visual fetishization of Salander emphasizing Larsson's clueless background misogyny. In addition, the photorealistic art style and attempt at dynamic storytelling, while striking in and of itself, works against the procedural grind of reading documents and computer hacking which provided the action in the novel. The resulting hybrid is not so much a reinterpretation of the original as a slightly edited storyboard. While it won't necessarily make new fans on its own, completists should enjoy the new visual interpretation." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Stieg Larsson, who lived in Sweden, was the editor in chief of the magazine Expo and a leading expert on antidemocratic right-wing extremist and Nazi organizations. He died in 2004, shortly after delivering the manuscripts for The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Next.

Shel Anderson, January 30, 2013 (view all comments by Shel Anderson)
Actually, I re-read this book and its two sequels The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest and The Girl Who Played with Fire. The first time I read them, I gulped them down, curious to know what would happen next. But they repay a second or even third reading. I love a woman who is brave, and smart, and who takes down her enemies. But this is a very special young woman, not the swords and sorcery fantasy heroine. And I enjoyed the main male character, the narrator of the first book, who respects and values women, and sees the special qualities of Lisbeth Sander. If you never read the book, get all three and prepare to stay up late at night.
