I have never seen the film(s) or read the book, but people keep telling me I just have to. I'm not sure why. Because I use a computer and used to have funny hair and have a dragon tattoo?
9. Lisbeth Salander is crazy, Lisbeth Salander is broken. Lisbeth Salander doesn't know kindness. Until you come along. You. Yes, you. Lisbeth Salander is waiting for you, to show her the mysteries of her own heart. Lisbeth Salander: incomplete without you. You'll find yourself attracted to her, despite her prickly demeanor; underneath it all, she's really rather pretty, although she doesn't think so. Tell her she's a babe! She'll growl, but secretly she'll be pleased.
Bottom-line: not good books, but it's interesting to see Stieg cram in as many left-of-center issues into the genre as he can. The books really illuminate how many of these sort of spy/action/adventure novels come and spin some deeply right-wing fantasies.
