One Response to "Read It Before They Screen It: Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, Taking Woodstock, and Where the Wild Things Are"
March 29, 2009 at 12:32 AM
As the English translator of the Millennium trilogy, I'd rather not see the book and characters on the screen. From what I've seen of the trailers the violence in the film version is much more intrusive, and was certainly not what I envisioned when I was working on them. I have a picture of Salander and Blomkvist in my mind and I'd rather leave them untouched as Stieg Larsson described them than have someone else's idea of them imposed on me visually. Enough of the tyranny of the image!
