The books by Stieg Larsson i read a couple of years ago, yep i was 1 of the people that went along with the hype. But i’m not ashamed, the books are best sellers and written in a way that it grabs you right from the start.
In the beginning i had to really concentrate, so many names and so many different characters are named (especially in book 3 The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest). But ones you have it, you’re smack dead in the middle of Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander world.
Last week i decided to watch the Swedish movies that have been made, based on the novels. And i have to say i wasn’t disappointed. I’m not a real crime/thriller movie fan, but because i loved the books so much i wanted to see if the movies good measure up. Okay not everyting from the books came back in the movies, that wouldn’t be possible when you only have 2 hours to tell the story, but i did miss some of the details from the books. Those details made it fascinating to read and to my opinion completed the stories.
I have no regret that i did watch the movies, but i’m also very curious as to how the American version will turn out.
One thought on “Millenium Trilogy”
Ik ken dit helemaal niet!
De schoenen heb ik trouwens van Van Haren gekocht 🙂
