doc Ú Män som hatar kvinnor ☆ Stieg Larsson

Sensation Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo combines murder mystery family saga love story and financial intrigue into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novelAlternate Cover Edition ISBN ISB After having leaped onto the bandwagon with the rest of everyone I feel a certain amount of pretentious indie pride saying that I wasn't as awed by this book as everyone else apparently was Which is not to say that the book wasn't enjoyable and exciting; it just didn't knock my socks off whilst simultaneously blowing my mind and rocking my world that sounds like either some great song lyrics or a very complicated sexual maneuver Let's go with the first optionSo the good stuff the main story a disgraced journalist is hired by a rich old man to write a book about said man's crazy rich family while secretly working to discover truth behind the disappearance and supposed murder of the man's granddaughter Also in play is Lisbeth Salander a freelance investigator who also happens to be one of the best hackers in Sweden She also happens to be made of awesome but I'll get to that later The journalist is investigating a supposed murder a body was never found so no one even knows what happened to the girl so violence is expected I just wasn't uite prepared for just how intensely graphic the violence is There's a lot of stuff dealing with assault rape and murder of various women There is also a lot of sex in the book and the stuff that gets described in the most detail is definitely not consensual and will probably make you very uncomfortable You've been warned The investigation itself is pretty fascinating implausible as it is that some random guy investigating a disappearance that took place 40 years ago was able to find out completely new leads that weren't found by the police or the girl's grandfather who's been obsessing about the case since forever but I digress The family itself is eual parts interesting creepy and frustrating It's not until the journalist Blomkvist teams up with Lisbeth that things get really interesting and they made such a fun team I wanted them to get their own detective show The book deals mainly with crimes against women and those who commit them Larsson obviously feels very passionately about this subject as well as what should be done with the men who assault women Without giving anything away rest assured that every bad guy rapistmurdererwhatever gets a large helping of tasty justice And now for the bad stuff There's a lot of nattering on about business and computers and journalism and business stuff that either bored me or went over my head completely Larsson cannot seem to decide whether he wants to refer to people by their last name or their first name so he switches back and forth and it is confusing A family tree is provided at the beginning of the book since the family the journalist is investigating the Vangers is pretty big but I never had much trouble keeping everyone straight A map of the island the family compound is located on would have been much helpful since I never really figured out the geography of the place Pointless details I don't need to know what the characters ate for every single meal I don't need to know exactly what model of computermotorcyclecar a character uses and I definitely don't need to know what each character is wearing at every moment of the day Larsson is especially guilty of this when Lisbeth is concerned I guess he decided we wouldn't understand what a uniue counterculture tough chick she is unless we know that she's always wearing leather jackets boots torn jeans and black t shirts with angry slogans yes Larsson actually tells us what each of Lisbeth's t shirts says Listen Stieg Lisbeth is awesome She is wonderfully defined simply through her own actions and thoughts we don't even need the other characters constantly reminding us how antisocial and tough and uncommunicative and badass she is Believe me we can see that Show don't tell etc To sum up I'm going to give the last word to the book itself and uote a sentence that's actually a character talking about a book featured towards the end of the story but it could easily describe Larsson's bookIt was uneven stylistically and in places the writing was actually rather poor there had been no time for any fine polishing but the book was animated by a fury that no reader could help but notice That in a nutshell was how I felt about The Girl With the Dragon TattooUPDATE I just watched the film version of this book the original Swedish one thank you verra much and am adding this to my the movie is better shelf Not that the book isn't good; it's just that the movie streamlines the story and gets rid of everything I complained about earlier in this review In the movie all the minor characters and business drama babble has been eliminated Erika and Mikael's weird three way relationship is thankfully unmentioned Mikael never boffs Cecilia Vanger and Noomi Rapace is so fucking cool as Lisbeth I can't even handle it I'm also pretty sure they took some stuff from The Girl Who Played With Fire and put it in the movie because there's some stuff about Lisbeth's past that I don't remember from the book UPDATE UPDATE Having now seen the American remake and re watched the Swedish version I have come to a following decision While the American version is in a technical sense a better movie Fincher is a much better director for just one example the scene where Henrik Vanger explains the circumstances of Harriet's disappearance is a masterful example of show don't tell I dislike the changes they made to the ending and I simply cannot accept Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Although I'm proud of Fincher Co for making her look and act as weird as the character should something about her portrayal still wasn't right If you're interested this article explains pretty much every complaint I have about American Lisbeth
