Read: The Girl Who Lived Twice

Guilty pleasure. In my opinion, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (American Version) was one of the best films of the last decade and the Lisbeth Salander character was one of the best female roles of the same era. The fact Ms. Mara didn’t win the Oscar is a travesty. As is the fact there are apparently no plans for any more films in the American series. (Yes, I did like the Swedish films.)

As you would imagine, I’ve read everything else in this series including this latest offering from David Lagercrantz who has taken over the series after the death of author Steig Larsson. If you like this series then there is nothing I have to say. You will get it and you will read it. “The Girl Who Lived Twice” has all the bits you think it will have and a few more.

  1. Good to know. I liked the American and Swedish films, too, the first ones. I think I read the first book, but with like a lot of things nowadays, I’m not 100% sure. I’m about 90% sure. I saw clips from the subsequent films and worried that they were doing the typical Hollywood thing of defaulting to excess. For example – OK, he was Jason Bourne in the first film, but now he has to be Jason Bourne x4! I don’t want or need excess. I want stories. I may revisit this series.

    1. Scott,
      I was hiking with someone yesterday and we were speaking about Washington passes in the snow. Glad you made it. And those Eastern Oregon snaps are nice. That place is fantastic.
