Some of the absolute best fiction books I have read in the past year were the first two books of the Millenium series by Swedish writer Pier Larsson. His main character, Lisbeth Salander, is absolutely fascinating and the books have a multi layered complexity that makes for a very interesting read. The first two books are 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played with Fire". The third one, "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" still has to appear in English. Larsson died in 2004.
I didn't know the books were going to made into movies as I thought the complexity of the written story would be hard to translate into a 2 hour visual story line. Nalden blogged this morning about the trailer for the movie and I heard from people who attended Nalden's "Amongst Friends" screening of the movie that it is excellent. I can't wait for it to make it to the US. The first of the movies has as title "Män Som Hater Kvinnor" (men who hate women) and is the story of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
There are three versions of the movie trailer, with the final one reveal most details.
First teaser trailer (I could only find the spanish version):
This is the trailer for "Flickan Som Lekte Med Elden" which is not released until the fall
