Maybe, the English version is better. Any comment on this? Reading the first book in Finnish and thoroughly enjoying it! One of the best crime novels I have read in a long time. I have just finished the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in English and it was really non-put-downable! Will they be released in the U. Finished the last one yesterday, and I thought i had been waiting too long…. I read the first volume in english and like most people , just could not wait years to read the following two. Thanks god I am french and paid dearly for the next two in french then.
But I was struck how awful and vulgar the translation is in French. Where you can say the english version is well written, the french one is just painful to read at times by its excessive familiarity of tone, when you know that people such as ministers, journalists or police staff just would Not be so vulgar.
It certainly damages the sheer enjoyment of reading the most fantastic, clever and gripping trilogy ever written. Any answers would be much appreciated! Thank you to Josephine Huys. I was just wondering if the book was writen in Swedish or in English. I too am francophone and was wondering if I should get the book in french or english.
Now I have my answer. I am also upset with the name change from Men who hates women, to The girl with the dragon tattoo. Swedish Lord of the ring is a sooze, while the original is amazing. Is there a website where I can purchase the last 2 books of the triology in french? I would read them in english except that I will pass them on to my mother who only speaks french so it limits my choices of language. This could be one of the best reads ever.
MILLENNIUM COMPOSERS INITIATIVE - NEWS
I skipped sleep to finish book 1. Not that i was an addicted reader, i just got hooked and now i am getting me the rest of the trilogy. An instant classic! Larsson is the benchmark other writers should try adn live up to. The girl with the dragon tatoo was recently published in Romania with a different name, Man who hate women; great book, really loved it, I do not understand though why Romanians have this bad habit of changing books and movies titles.
I agree, it is much better than other countries where movies are doubled, but still I do not understand why some publisher would interfere with the title well chosen or not of a book. Anyway, your Romanian translation is closer to the original than the English one! Is a very big novel. What a story, what a astonishing style of writing!
Then I found out the author passed away 4 years ago.
What a loss! Cannot wait for the next one. Am gutted I need to wait till January Well done Stieg, book is absolutely brilliant. Well I have all the books in Swedish, yeahy for me…. For once!

I read it in English, very good. A brilliant book and I am sorry that the author passed away, it is a lost for the readers. Thank you Mr. I read the english version and love it. Why keep using the characters last names all the time instead of their first names? Although I think the descriptions are sometimes too long and often overwhelming with too many details, the story is riveting and mesmerizing. Good job! I am not looking forward to reading the last of this trilogy as I know there will be no other.
I cant wait to buy the 3rd and last one… the 3 of them have already been released in French… Lucky me!!! Love it. Thank you Stieg Larsson…. I was reading the comments and it seems that both the English and French versions are not that great. Is Salander only in this novel?
Global peace for the millennium is trio's aim
What happened to Larsson? He looks so young. I need more Salander. I read both the books when I was on holidays last summer. Just start. Forget traditional detectives: Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvisk blow them all up. I read that book a few weeks ago and thought it was very good. I am curious as to why its called the girl with the dragon tattoo in english since I dont recall anything to do with a dragon tattoo in the swedish version. Anyone any ideas? Is the title refering to Elisebeth or Harriet?
I already read the first 2 books and I am now reading the 3rd one released on oktober 10th in Holland. The 3 books are absolutely fantastic. I finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night at a. This is one of the best books that I have ever read. I read this within 24 hours of starting it!! I can hardly wait for the other two books to be released. Am in Sweden visiting my son. Read the first in English in a couple of days.
Brilliant piece of suspense. Shame Stieg is not around to appreciate the fruits of his labour. Just finished the first tittle when I find out it was part of 3. I am looking hard for the other 2 but in portuguese of course! The translator did a great job. I loved the humor and the quirky personalities. Such a loss to the world of crime fiction that there will not be more! Made it last longer, because I did not want it to end.
It is really sad that Stieg Larsson died so young. What a wonderful writer and what a great book! The way he layers stories within the book and brings it all to a compelling climax is nothing short of brilliant. So sad to lose a talent like his. What a great book!
Western Civilization: The Complete Musical (abridged)
Looking forward to the next one but sad to know that we have lost such a great writer. I was sad when it all ended. Finished the third one today! I read them in French. I am very surprised that these were not translated into English earlier. I am spreading the word in Australia, not sure it is available here yet. I finished the third and final book yesterday, and I must say that these books were quite special. I was surprised to on the web today that there would have been more to come. Fortunately for us there is a real feeling of closure in the third book.
